A woman was arrested Saturday after authorities at the Coweta County Jail caught her attempting to pass marijuana and tobacco along to an inmate.

During visiting hours on Saturday, jail supervisors observed a woman attempting to pass something along to an inmate at the Coweta County Jail on Greison Trail in Newnan, said Lt. John Kennedy with sheriff’s office. The woman was stopped and taken into custody, and Sgt. Vic McPhie with the Crime Suppression Unit was contacted to investigate the incident.

According to Kennedy, McPhie interviewed the woman, identified as Chadise N.

After this, King was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and crossing a guard line with drugs, and she was booked.
