A 42-year-old Kodiak woman was arrested at the Anchorage airport Saturday by Alaska State Troopers after a long-term narcotics investigation indicated she may be smuggling drugs into Kodiak.
The Troopers report that a search warrant was obtained and Tamra M. Jones underwent a full-body scan at an Anchorage hospital, which revealed a balloon concealed inside her.
After its discovery in the scan, Jones voluntarily gave up the balloon, and it was found to contain 24.3 grams of heroin and 8.3 grams of methamphetamine.
Troopers estimate the value of the drugs at over $25,000. Jones was arrested and housed in the Anchorage jail on $25,000 bail. She was charged with two counts of misconduct involving a controlled substance in the fourth degree, and a count each of second- and third-degree misconduct.
