MOBERLY — A Columbia woman was arrested Saturday on suspicion of attempting to smuggle marijuana into a correctional facility.
Randolph County Circuit Clerk Peggy Boots said police arrested Cynthia Cooper after Cooper said in a monitored phone conversation with Moberly Correctional Facility inmate Timothy Wright that she would try to bring to bring him drugs.
In the conversation, Cooper promised to bring Wright some "Scooby snacks," Boots said. Officers found the marijuana in two balloons concealed beneath Cooper's shirt.
Cooper's bond is set at $75,000, according to a release. The bond is high because the incident occurred in a correctional facility, Moberly Police Commander Kevin Palmatory said in an email.
Cooper's trial is scheduled for Sept. 19, Boots said.
