KINGMAN - A Superior woman faces a felony charge after she allegedly attempted to smuggle in drugs to her husband, an inmate at Arizona State Prison-Kingman in Golden Valley.
Valerie Priscilla Serrano, 46, was charged with promoting prison contraband during a visitation that ended when Mohave County Sheriff's deputies were called to the penitentiary at about 11:35 a.m. Sunday. A corrections officer allegedly found two balloons containing drugs during a pat-down.
"During conversations with Serrano, she said she was bringing the spice in for her husband as he recently received some bad news and he needed to relax," wrote sheriff's office spokeswoman Trish Carter. Serrano was taken into custody without incident.
On March 2, Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrested Maximillion Xavier Aramus Morrison, 22, of Kingman on felony charges of possession of dangerous drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia, a felony probation violation warrant issued by Mohave County Superior Court, and misdemeanor charges of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Deputies received a tip regarding the whereabouts of a wanted man. After confirming Morrison had a felony warrant, deputies contacted him outside of a business in the 2900 block of Northern Avenue where he was taken into custody without incident.
Morrison reportedly told deputies he had a marijuana and meth pipe in his possession. A search revealed the pipes, along with a plastic bag containing a white crystal substance that field tested positive for methamphetamine, and three small plastic bags containing marijuana.
On March 3, Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrested Randell Schott Chrisco, 25, of Kingman on a felony organized theft warrant and two misdemeanor warrants for contempt of court and shoplifting, all issued by Kingman Justice Court.

A record check revealed the warrants and Chrisco was taken into custody without incident.
