A Vicksburg woman was in the Warren County Jail Saturday charged with possession of a controlled substance in a correctional facility, Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said.

Chiquita Wince, 20, 814 Walnut St., is accused of bringing marijuana into the Warren County Jail and attempting to give it to an inmate during visiting hours around 2 p.m. Friday. Jail officials saw Wince try to slip an envelope containing pot and tobacco through a door in a cell block, Pace said. The officers stopped her and, after searching her, they found two packages of pot in the waistband of her pants.

A K-9 officer was called and after a search of Wince’s car they found two more small bags containing pot, Pace said. Wince is being held in the jail without bond pending an initial court hearing.
