CALIPATRIA, Calif. – A prison visitor was arrested after officials say she tried to smuggle methamphetamine and heroin into Calipatria State Prison.
Fourty-seven-year-old Natalie Garcia was visiting inmate Edwin Mora, who was convicted of robbery.
Officers say the two shared a bag of Doritos and appeared nervous. An officer noticed there was more than just chips inside the bag.
When the two were separated officers say they found two individually wrapped bindles of methamphetamine inside the snack.
Officers then searched the car Garcia drove to the prison where they found eight other bindles of heroin.
The drugs could have sold for more than $29,000 combined inside prison walls, according to officers.
Mora was placed in administrative segregation after officers were able to link him to the incident.
Garcia, a Ventura, California resident, was arrested and booked into Imperial County Jail, if convicted she could face three to five years in prison.
