A mother-of-four smuggled drugs into a prison hidden in her bra when she visited her brother, a judge was told.
Margaret Myers (38) went to Featherstone Prison, near Wolverhampton, in June to visit her brother Michael with his 19- year- old girlfriend, Shevon Wood, Stafford Crown Court heard.
Glyn Samuel, prosecuting, said a CCTV operator became suspicious about what was happening at the table the three of them were at in the visitors' area. "Michael Myers was seen to take an object from a packet of crisps held by his girlfriend and put it into the waistband of his trousers," he said.
"Officers cancelled the visit and the women were detained. Michael Myers was taken away to be searched and handed over a small block of cannabis in clingfilm.
"He was wearing two pairs of underpants and the drug had been positioned in between the two pairs. He was expecting a delivery of drugs.
" Wood denied any knowledge of the substance but Myers admitted taking the package into prison hidden in her bra. It was passed to Wood who put it in a crisp packet for her boyfriend." Myers and Wood, both of Luton, were each jailed for two months.
Recorder John Newman told them: "I have no alternative but to impose an immediate sentence of imprisonment.
"You will discover the problems that drugs cause in prison and why they have to be so careful to try to stop people bringing them in. Drugs make prisoners get into debt and then there is further trouble which dragged you into it."
