PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A Goodyear woman's visit to jail turned into her own incarceration after she was arrested on an outstanding warrant and then found to have black tar heroin and methamphetamine in her purse.

Stacey Ann Lopez, 44, was arrested Sunday by Maricopa County sheriff's deputies at the Towers Jail in Phoenix on an outstanding Peoria police warrant for driving under the influence and driving under the influence of marijuana.

During a search of her purse, deputies found black electrical tape, drug paraphernalia, heroin and meth. She identified the drugs, deputies said.

They also searched the inmate she visited, 41-year-old Marcelino Garcia, and found what was suspected to be heroin, meth, an unknown white powdery substance, and a lighter wrapped in a paper towel and then in black electrical tape.

Lopez was booked into the Fourth Avenue Jail on the warrants, promoting prison contraband, possession of dangerous drugs, narcotics and drug paraphernalia.
