KINGMAN - A woman police say drove more than three hours to bring her boyfriend at the Arizona state prison a bag of contraband found herself behind bars earlier this week.

Linda Castro Granados, 26, of Cashion, which is in the Phoenix area, was booked into the Mohave County Jail on a total of 44 felony counts.

Granados was reportedly observed parking her car in the prison's lot just before 10 a.m. Sunday, retrieving a bag from her trunk and later dropping that bag in a trash can near the front entrance.

The bag allegedly contained cell phones, SIM cards, phone chargers, tooth brushes, a disposable lighter, methamphetamine and heroin.

Granados was with her 5-year-old son at the time. She denied the bag was hers, saying that she threw away a fast food bag. The son's father is incarcerated at the prison.

Child Protective Services responded to the prison and took custody of the child until a relative responded.

It's not clear how the inmate was supposed to retrieve the items.

Granados faces eighteen counts of introduction of contraband into a prison, eighteen counts of introduction of contraband/conveying to inmate confined in facility, four counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, two counts of possession of dangerous drugs, possession of narcotic drugs and child abuse, all felonies.
