DECATUR, Ala. (AP) - Authorities have arrested two women they say used a bible to smuggle contraband into a jail.

The Decatur Daily (https://bit.ly/1Z8iPg8 ) reports 36-year-old Sarah Ellen Cross and 40-year-old Candice Nichole Ellenburg were booked Tuesday on counts of second-degree promoting prison contraband and first-degree promoting prison contraband.

Sheriff Ana Franklin says the two put drugs and plastic knives inside a bible and sent them to Cross’ brother, Harold Dwayne Ledbetter, an inmate at Morgan County Jail.

Ellenburg was being held in Morgan County Jail on Wednesday in lieu of $20,000 bail. Cross was held in lieu of $20,300 bail.

It’s unclear if they have attorneys.
