A Columbia woman has been charged with delivering a controlled substance to jail for allegedly bringing a crack pipe to the Marion Walthall Correctional Facility.
The woman, Jessica Lambert, 22, allegedly brought the crack pipe into jail after she was arrested for public drunk by the Columbia Police Department on May 11. The crack pipe contained a small amount of crack cocaine, the affidavit states.
She was caught with the crack pipe in jail the same night she was booked on the public drunk charge, according to the police report. She had hidden the crack pipe in her buttocks and pulled it out to smoke after borrowing a lighter from an inmate, the police report adds.
The incident was reported to the Pearl River Basin Narcotics Task Force. Although the alleged incident occurred on May 11, Lambert was not arrested on the charge until today, according to the jail log. The charge of delivering a controlled substance to a correctional facility is a felony, and Lambert has a preliminary appearance scheduled for June 10 in Marion County Justice Court.
