A 56-year-old woman has found herself in legal trouble after she allegedly brought drugs into a jail where she was turning herself in, according to local sources in Polk County. Iowa authorities reported that a warrant had been issued for her arrest late in March, and she was attempting to turn herself in when the incident took place. She now faces a drug charge in addition to the existing charges for which the warrant was issued.
According to the report of this unusual case, on March 27, a warrant was issued for the arrest of the 56-year-old Des Moines resident, alleging her failure to appear for a deposition bond hearing. She reportedly violated a no-contact order. The woman appeared the week of April 8 at Polk County Jail to turn herself in. However, when she entered the jail proper, a baggie apparently fell out of her pants.
