A 43 year old woman will go before the courts after she was allegedly caught with nearly 4 grams of heroin at the Goulburn Correctional Centre at the weekend.

 

It is alleged she had 3.8 grams of the drug hidden in a balloon in her mouth after entering the car-park at the gaol.

 

She is among six people charged with contraband offences during a prison-visitor search operation by Corrective Services officers and police.

 

During the operation, assisted by detection dogs, officers also seized 10 balloons containing tobacco and three other balloons containing another drug and white powder.

 

Two knives and four syringes were also found.

 

A spokesman says almost all of the contraband was allegedly discovered in visitor cars.
