A 30-year-old woman was ar­rested last week for al­legedly smug­gling in two small balls of cannabis that were found in an in­mate’s mouth at Roe­bourne Re­gional Pri­son.

The Depart­ment of Cor­rec­tions re­ported to Roe­bourne po­lice on Oc­to­ber 18 staff had found con­tra­band wrapped in cling wrap dur­ing a rou­tine strip search of a 28-year-old male pris­oner af­ter he was vis­ited by the woman.

Fol­low­ing po­lice in­quiries, the woman was charged with sup­ply­ing a pro­hib­ited drug on Fri­day.

The woman has been re­leased on bail with a con­di­tion not to visit the pri­son.
