ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Three more people have been charged in what Alaska State Troopers say was a conspiracy to smuggle drugs into Goose Creek Correctional Center.

KTUU-TV (https://bit.ly/1FPlAe6) reports 25-year-old Mavaega Tautua and 30-year-old Aaron Aasa are charged with promoting contraband and felony drug misconduct.

Twenty-seven-year-old Kyle Hansen was arrested on the same charges. Troopers say he was responsible for gathering money into a bank account using a contact outside the jail system to buy drugs.

Tautua, Aasa and Hansen are inmates at Goose Creek.

A 25-year-old Anchorage woman, Gwendoline Maka, was charged with contraband and drug counts Wednesday night as she drove toward the prison near Wasilla.

Troopers say she was carrying methamphetamine and heroin.

Troopers say monitored prison phone calls led to the arrests.
