Dais “was unable to clear the metal detector,” when she was entering the front bunker for visitors, officials said. She faces charges of marijuana possession, giving or possessing liquor, drugs, weapons by an inmate without consent of warden, and crossing state or county guard lines with weapons, intoxicants or drugs without consent. She remained in jail on an $11,000 bond.
The third arrest was made at the Telfair State Prison where authorities also said Diamond Thornton failed to clear the metal detector.
Officials said Thornton consented to a search, which led to discovery of 18 grams of marijuana wrapped in a clear plastic bag in the back seat of her car. She remained in the Telfair County jail on a $5,000 bond.
Thornton faces marijuana possession and crossing state or county guard lines with weapons, intoxicants, or drugs without consent, the Telfair County Sheriff’s Office said.
The Georgia Department of Corrections has made 1,198 contraband arrests since July 2010.
