This we can, without a doubt, call Bust of the day……….A 44-year-old Central West woman has been sent to jail for attempting to smuggle contraband into Bathurst Correctional Centre.
According to police facts, Nichola Janette Sutton of Parkes attended the jail around 12.50pm on Saturday, July 7, 2018, to visit her partner.
Corrective officers conducted a search of the vehicle and located the syringe, as well as a small resealable bag containing white powder.
Police were called and arrived a short time later, and officers informed Sutton she would be searched on the suspicion she was in possession of drugs.
She was taken to a private room where Sutton produced a small orange water balloon containing cannabis from under her left breast and another small orange and yellow water balloon containing buprenorphine from under her right breast and handed them to police.
