IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) - Authorities say a Bonneville County woman arrested over the weekend for driving drunk and crashing a truck is facing new charges after jail officers found methamphetamine in her bra.

The Post Register reports (https://bit.ly/1Su4f4W ) that 30-year-old Bernadette Nugent faces a felony charge of conveying major contraband in a correctional facility for the Monday incident.

She had initially been arrested Saturday after police say she stole a truck and crashed into the vehicle’s owner, who had been following her in a 2007 Chevy Tahoe.

Police spokeswoman Joelyn Hansen says officers suspected Nugent had been driving under the influence.

She is expected to appear in court April 29.
