Woman arrested for attempting to bring drugs into city jail

RICHMOND, VA - Sheriff C.T. Woody, Jr. today reported the arrest of a woman last weekend for possession of marijuana after she attempted to enter the visitation area of the Richmond City Jail with a small bag of marijuana concealed inside her purse. A subsequent search of her vehicle resulted in the discovery of an additional, larger bag of marijuana.

On Saturday, July 16th, 2010, at 09:55 a.m., Mikala Michelle Hairston, age 31, was detained and arrested on two counts possession of marijuana, first offense, and one count of attempted delivery of drugs to a confined prisoner.

The charge of ‘delivery of or the attempted delivery of a controlled substance to a confined prisoner' is a class 5 felony under Virginia Code. Mrs. Hairston was subsequently processed and released on a $500 bond.
