LOWNDES COUNTY, GA (WALB) – An Atlanta woman is charged with trying to smuggle drugs and cell phones to inmates in a south Georgia prison.

A Lowndes County deputy thought 20-year old Paris Watkins looked suspicious parked at a business on Val Tech Road.

In her car, he found marijuana and evidence that led him to believe Watkins had thrown items over the fence at Valdosta State Prison.

A search of the prison yard turned up marijuana, 13 cell phones, dice and an I-pod.

Watkins is charged with marijuana possession with intent to distribute and providing contraband to inmates.
