A Corinth woman was arrested Friday for allegedly attempting to deliver a Bible containing cocaine to an inmate, Alcorn County Sheriff Ben Caldwell said.
Jolona Nicole Lambert, of 54 County Road 192, was arrested by Alcorn County narcotics investigator Adam Rencher on a charge of introduction of contraband into a correctional facility, a sheriff’s office news release said.
Alcorn County Jail Administrator Steve Wilburn on Monday notified Rencher that a female delivered a Bible to the facility for an inmate.
Some pages in the Bible had been glued together and allegedly contained a white powdery substance that tested positive for cocaine, the news release said.
Alcorn County Justice Court Judge Jimmy McGee set Lambert’s bond at $5,000, and she had a hold placed on her by the Mississippi Department of Corrections.
