MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A woman has been arrested by the Alabama Department of Corrections and charged with attempting to smuggle drugs to a work release inmate, according to court filings.

Pamela Hovis, 61, was arrested in a parking lot in the 7000 block of Atlanta Highway where investigators found her in possession of marijuana and a substance that had been packed and set for delivery to Sandra Youngblood.

Youngblood, an inmate at the Montgomery Women's Facility, is serving time for burglary and theft charges while working at a restaurant on Atlanta Highway as part of her work release.

Investigators said Hovis conspired with her daughter, Tiffany Cherry, to get the packaged drugs into Tutwiler Prison where she is an inmate serving time for possession of a controlled substance and manufacturing of a controlled substance. 

Hovis was booked into the Montgomery County Detention Facility.
