An arrest warrant has been issued for a north Georgia woman accused of sending a greeting card filled with paper that tested positive for methamphetamine to a Cobb County Jail inmate.
The Cobb County Sheriff’s Office has charged Jessica Culver of Ft. Oglethorpe with one count each of items prohibited for possession by inmates and use of communications facilities to violate prohibited provisions. The inmate on the receiving end of the card, Jonathan David Arwood, is also charged with the same crimes.
According to the arrest warrant obtained June 6, a greeting card was mailed May 9 via the U.S. Postal Service to Arwood, a Dalton resident who is at the jail on drug trafficking and weapons charges.
That greeting card, the warrant states, contained 10 pieces of white paper that tested positive for methamphetamine. In a phone interview with deputies, Culver allegedly said she mailed the greeting card to Arwood, but denied knowing that the card contained meth.
The arrest warrant issued for Arwood states he was heard on recorded jail phone calls explaining how to conceal the drug inside the card. Those calls also indicate he allegedly knew about the attempted delivery, the warrant adds.
As of Monday, Culver has not been booked into the Cobb County Jail. Cobb County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Glenn Daniel said the case was investigated by the Marietta, Cobb and Smyrna Organized Crime Unit. Arwood remains held on the charges without bond.
