NEVADA, Mo. (AP) — A woman has been charged with trying to smuggle drugs to an inmate at a southwest Missouri jail inside a Bible.

The Kansas City Star reports that Ashley Despain, of Nevada, Missouri, was charged this week with delivery or possession of a controlled substance in a jail. No attorney is listed for Despain in online court records. Bond is set at $5,000.

Vernon County Sheriff Jason Mosher says putting drugs inside a Bible is the “wrong kind of help.”
