From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
CLAYTON, Ala. — Two people were arrested on Saturday, May 11, 2019, during visitation at the Ventress Correctional Facility in Clayton, Alabama.
The Alabama Department of Corrections said there were two separate incidents leading to the arrests.
Dionne Perdue, 28, of Grady, was arrested for promoting prison contraband after a correctional officer found a cell phone and a cell phone charger, wrapped in black electrical tape, during a search.
Morgan Steele, 27, of Brewton, is facing charges for unlawful possession of a controlled substance after agents said they found methamphetamines and drug paraphernalia in her possession during an inspection of the vehicle she was driving.
In November 2015, Steele was released from prison on parole after serving one year for possession of a controlled substance in Escambia County.
Perdue and Steele were taken to Barbour County Jail where they were booked.
