A couple from Florida find themselves behind bars after trying to sneak illegal drug contraband into a prison in South Georgia.

The Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office seized several grams of meth and weed.

Calhoun County Chief Deputy David Moseley was driving on Highway 45 on Friday when he noticed a woman, Danielle Cruz of Mexico City Beach, Florida, standing outside her vehicle in the parking area of a deserted gas station.

“She had her trunk and doors opened, so I stopped to see if I could assist her and when I made contact with her she was nervous,” Moseley told WALB.

Moseley then contacted Deputy Mary Price for backup.

“He made contact, and she advised him that she dropped someone off at the prison,” Price stated.

Moseley added that Cruz dropped off her boyfriend at the Calhoun State Prison to see his son, a prisoner.

Moseley said they also brought something else. The warden discovered eight bundles of meth and marijuana on the boyfriend and his son.

Police could tell that something was strange with Cruz as well.

“She had on a bra. It was a bra and a pair of shorts that could have been worn as panties, they were little to nothing,” Price added.

Inside of the vehicle, Moseley and Price discovered four grams of meth, nine prepaid cards, phones, and drug paraphernalia.

“There’s also some things we’re going to send to the crime lab because we don’t know what they are,” Moseley stated.

Cruz has been booked into the Calhoun County Jail and has been charged with possessing meth with the intent to distribute. Her boyfriend has also been charged.
