Ark. Prison Guard Arrested on Gun, Drug Complaint

PINE BLUFF, Ark. (AP) - Bond has been set at $5,000 for a prison guard at the Maximum Security Unit near Pine Bluff after authorities say marijuana was found in her bra as she reported for work.

A judge on Friday ruled there was probable cause to charge 26-year-old Michelle Anderson of Pine Bluff with possession of drugs with intent to deliver and possession of a weapon on prison property. According to a state police affidavit, Anderson was arrested Wednesday after another corrections officer conducting a body search found more than an ounce of marijuana in her bra.

Deputy prosecutor Nicole Pugh Anderson says corrections officers searched Anderson's vehicle in the parking lot of the prison and found a handgun. --- Information from: Pine Bluff Commercial, http://www.pbcommercial.com
