Loaded Guns Smuggled into Tennessee Prison

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee prison officials have charged a Chattanooga woman with smuggling two loaded handguns into a state prison at Wartburg.

The guns were hidden in a box filled with board games and books.

Twenty seven-year-old Tiara Monique Ward is being held at the Morgan County Jail on a $100,000 bond.

A Department of Correction news release says investigators discovered the two weapons in a package delivered to the Morgan County Correctional Complex on Sept. 17.

The Thursday statement says an investigation is continuing and more arrests could be made.

Department of Correction spokeswoman Dorinda Carter said there is someone Ward “had a relationship with” at the prison.
