PERRY COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Authorities in Perry County made a drug bust during a jail visit.

According to the Perry County Sheriff's Department, Cathy Clingan, 41, came to visit an inmate Saturday, bringing the inmate a bag of color markers.

During the inspection, an officer discovered that the markers were packed with marijuana and crystal meth. 

"They started going through the markers finding that the back of the markers had been opened up. As they undid the markers and started pulling out little bags, some of it had marijuana in it, and some of them had crystal meth in them," said Sheriff Mitch Nobles.

The Perry County Sheriffs Department says Clingan admitted to having meth in her possession during the booking process.

Clingan is charged with Felony Possession of a Controlled Substance and Felony Introduction of Contraband into a Jail. She faces a maximum of 12 years in prison. Her bond was at 60-thousand-dollars.
