The Tennessee authorities recently arrested a 68-year-old woman after a prison warden discovered that the granny attempted to slip his grandson a bag of Doritos packed with drugs. As a result, the Tennessee granny was arrested and charged with contraband.
Tennessee Granny Allegedly Stashed the Drugs in Doritos Bag
On Saturday, officers at the Shelby County Division of Corrections arrested 68-year-old Sarah Griffin after a warden caught the woman trying to smuggle drugs inside the penal facility.
According to the Tennessee granny’s arrest warrant, the woman was visiting his son who was imprisoned at the correctional facility. At one point during their conversation, Griffin allegedly slipped the inmate something that looked like an ordinary bag of Doritos.
The correctional officer supervising Griffin’s visit saw the exchange and asked the woman to relinquish the bag. Upon opening it, the officer discovered a container of some kind, tightly wrapped in electrical tape.
When the warden opened the container, he discovered that the Tennessee granny was carrying quite a stash. A quick inventory of the Doritos bag revealed that it contained 1.1 g. of heroin, 1.7 g. of ecstasy, 28.5 g. of methamphetamine, 11.4 g. of pot and approximately 40 bars of Xanax.
After the authorities confronted the Tennessee granny, the woman told them that she got the bag from a young lady before entering the prison and that she did not know that it contained drugs. Furthermore, Griffin told the authorities that she truly believed that the Doritos bags actually contained a cellphone.
The woman was later taken into custody and charged with smuggling contraband in prison. At this point, we don’t know for certain if her grandson will face additional charges related to the drug exchange. The authorities are trying to determine if the woman’s grandson is part of a prison drug ring.
