KINGMAN - Another woman has been caught trying to smuggle drugs into the Arizona state prison in Golden Valley.

Christina Marie Cisneros, 33, of Mesa, was arrested April 16 after a K-9 checking visitors alerted to the woman's purse around 8 a.m.

A prison officer checking the purse found a balloon containing a substance that field-tested positive for heroin. More heroin was located in Cisneros bra and sock, said Trish Carter, spokeswoman for the Mohave County Sheriff's Office. Carter said the heroin weighed approximately 63 grams in total.

An additional 49 grams of marijuana were found after a body cavity search, Carter said.

Cisneros was reportedly at the prison to visit a relative.

She was booked into the Mohave County Jail on seventeen counts of possession of dangerous drugs, possession of marijuana and eighteen counts of promoting prison contraband, all felonies.

A 26-year-old Phoenix woman visiting her boyfriend was arrested last month at the prison after she reportedly dropped a bag full of drugs and other contraband into a trash can in the parking lot.

That woman, Linda Castro Granados, faces 44 felony charges.
