CALIPATRIA, Calif. – A woman was arrested after prison guards found marijuana stashed in the car she was driving.
Officers say, Erica Carachure, 22, came to the prison grounds Saturday in hopes of visiting an inmate. However, the gate house officer noticed a strong smell of pot coming from her.
During a search of the car Carachure was in, officers found five plastic containers and five hand-rolled cigarettes which had about 43 grams of pot inside.
Carachure was arrested and booked into Imperial County Jail and is facing felony charges.
Officers say the pot could have sold for about $10,800 inside prison walls.
