Sheriff Barry Faile said Monday authorities began investigating Shareca Latoya Jones, 28, earlier this month after a package mailed to Lieber Correctional Institution was returned to a post office in Lancaster. Inside the package were two Bibles containing razor knives, a cellphone, ecstasy pills and more than 28 grams of cocaine.

Deputies identified Miss Jones as the person who mailed the package from a Kershaw post office. In her car, authorities found a loaded handgun, drugs, cellphones and cash.

Miss Jones is facing drug and contraband charges. She was released from jail on bond.
