A woman in Corinth, Mississippi, was arrested after police say she tried to sneak a Bible filled with cocaine into a jail.

Officials at Corinth’s Alcorn County Jail say they caught Jolona Nicole Lambert trying to sneak the drug-filled Bible into the jail to give the drugs to an inmate she was visiting, a local ABC affiliate reported.

Jailkeepers said they noticed that some of the pages of the book seemed to be stuck together, and when the tome was given closer inspection, the cocaine was found inside the pages.

Lambert was arrested by Alcorn County narcotics investigator Adam Rencher and charged with attempting to import contraband into the jail. She is now behind bars on a $5,000 bond.
