KINGMAN, AZ (CBS5) -

Mohave County sheriff's deputies arrested two Valley women on suspicion of trying to bring drugs into the Kingman prison, including a 70-year-old woman who allegedly carried heroin.

Deputies said Jennie Diaz Osuna, 70, of Phoenix, and Susan Claire Anderson, 51, of Avondale, had driven to the prison together on Saturday morning to see their sons.

As the two were going through the metal detectors for visitors, Osuna set off the alarm, according to a prison official. She was searched by prison personnel and they said they found a black bundle about 8 inches long and an inch in radius wrapped in tape on her body.

Prison personnel found a brown powdery substance inside aluminum foil and wrapped in cellophane that tested positive for heroin, according to an MCSO representative.

Deputies arrested both woman and booked them into the Mohave County Jail on suspicion of introducing prison contraband, possession of narcotic drugs, possession of narcotic drugs for sale, transportation of narcotic drugs for sale and possession of drug paraphernalia, all felonies.

Mohave County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Trish Carter said Wednesday that Osuna remains in custody.

Carter stated Anderson is out of jail on a $15,000 bond.
