Police: Woman tried to smuggle pot, heroin into prison

SMYRNA, Del. - (AP) - A Woodside woman is charged with trying to smuggle heroin and marijuana into the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center during a visit.

Delaware State Police say 32-year-old Ashley M. Everett was arrested Wednesday and charged with two counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, two counts of promoting prison contraband and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Troopers say Everett entered the visiting area of the correctional center to visit an inmate. A correctional officer told Everett she would be searched for any contraband. Everett became emotional, and after officers searched her she was found to have .084 grams of raw heroin and 3.52 grams of marijuana in a bag inside her mouth.

It's unclear if Everett has an attorney.
