Methamphetamine, valued at $21,000 destined for the Valdosta State Prison, was intercepted in a joint operation of the Lee County Narcotics Team, Office of Professional Standards, and the Department of Community Supervision.
Marsha Ann Rogers from Anderson, SC and Kevin Michael Shaffer, who is an inmate at Valdosta State Prison, were communicating by cell phones. Cell phones are not allowed in prisons, and that is a crime as well.
Rogers, Shaffer's girlfriend, planned to visit him on March 11th, to bring him some Meth.
The Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office had already arrested Rogers in January for possession of Meth, and she was out on bond for that offense.
A sting was set up by the Lee County Special Victims Unit, and both were arrested.
Rogers and Shaffer will now face Federal charges, and more arrests could follow.
