Woman accused of using children to smuggle weed into Telfair State Prison

A woman was arrested Monday after allegedly using children to smuggle marijuana into a state prison.

According to a post on the Georgia Department of Corrections website, a sergeant noticed a strong smell of marijuana when Shalon Booker was entering the prison for visitation.

After asking if she would consent to a strip search, she agreed and nothing was found.

However, a search was done on her vehicle and the two children inside confessed to an investigator that they were hiding four red balloons in their waistbands containing 27 grams of marijuana -- nearly an ounce.

The balloons were confiscated and both Booker and the other adult passenger in the car were charged with possession with intent to distribute, crossing a guard line with intent to distribute and two counts of cruelty to children.
