RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)-A man and woman are in trouble Tuesday night, accused of trying to smuggle drugs into a Virginia jail by hiding them in a Bible.

The sheriff's office in Amherst County says the couple tried to smuggle the drugs into the county jail last week.

Police say they seized the Bible and discovered a secret compartment.

27 year old Milton Branham and 25 year Tamisha Hart were arrested and charged with trying to deliver a controlled substance to a prisoner.

Branham is being held without bond and Hart was freed on bond.
