Woman allegedly smuggles drugs to Mercer Jail inmate through kisses

Posted: Updated:

MERCER, Pa. (AP) - State police are investigating a report that a woman smuggled drug-filled balloons to her western Pennsylvania inmate boyfriend by passing them mouth-to-mouth during a kiss.
 
Troopers say the incident happened Jan. 31 at the State Correctional Institution-Mercer.
 
The Associated Press is not naming the suspects because police say they won't be charged unless and until crime lab tests confirm the presence of drugs.
 
Police say the 45-year-old Pittsburgh woman had the balloons in her mouth when she kissed the 46-year-old inmate that afternoon.
 
Police say prison officials recovered the balloons days later from the inmate's bowel movement.
 
Police plan to charge the inmate with possessing contraband - in this case, an illegal drug - and to charge the woman with furnishing drugs to an inmate.
