ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A 42-year-old Kodiak woman suspected of carrying narcotics was taken into custody in Anchorage as she attempted to board a flight to Kodiak.

Alaska State Troopers say Tamra M. Jones was investigated as part of a long-term narcotics investigation by the Western Alaska Alcohol and Narcotics Team.

Jones was detained Saturday. After officers obtained a search warrant to conduct a body scan, she was taken to a hospital. Troopers say the scan revealed she was concealing a balloon with smaller items inside her body.

Trooper say Jones voluntarily removed the balloon and it contained 24.3 grams of heroin, valued at $24,000 in Kodiak, and 8.3 grams of methamphetamine, valued at $2,500.

Jones was charged with four counts of misconduct involving a controlled substance. She was jailed with bail set at $25,000.
