Woman tries to smuggle drugs in hollow Bibles


SOUTH CAROLINA, USA (AP) — Deputies in South Carolina say a woman used two hollowed-out Bibles to try to smuggle weapons, drugs and a cellphone to a prison inmate.

Sheriff Barry Faile said Monday authorities began investigating 28-year-old Shareca Latoya Jones earlier this month after a package mailed to Lieber Correctional Institution was returned to a post office in Lancaster.

Inside the package were two Bibles containing razor knives, a cellphone, ecstasy pills and more than 28 grams of cocaine.

Deputies identified Jones as the person who mailed the package from a Kershaw post office. In her car, authorities found a loaded handgun, drugs, cellphones, and cash.

Jones is facing drug and contraband charges. She was released from jail on bond, and it wasn’t known if she had an attorney.
