A woman was arrested Saturday at Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF) after she was found to have concealed drugs in her crotch.
The incident occurred at around 11.35 am.
According to information obtained by St Lucia Times, the woman was visiting an inmate at the time.
It is reported that the female, who had a baby with her, was subjected to a pat-down and allowed into the room where visitors meet inmates in the presence of a Correctional Officer.
The officer noticed that the visitor surreptitiously passed something to the inmate.
Both were searched and each was found in possession of a packet of marijuana weighing about eight ounces.
The drug was found concealed in the woman’s crotch.
Both individuals were taken to the Dennery police station where they were expected to be charged.
