A Poughkeepsie woman who brought drugs to a prison vist on Saturday found herself behind bars after being caught by a corrections officer, according to state police.

Amanda L. Lewis, 32, was arrested for promoting prison contraband at the Ulster County Jail in the Town of Wawarsing, said NYSP Spokesman Trooper Steven Nevel.

Lewis was caught after a Corrections K-9 officer alerted on her possessions which were then searched by troopers from Troop F who found a prescription bottle containing six different types of controlled substances. Officials also found a marijuana cigarette and a marijuana grinder in her vehicle also on prison grounds.

She was charged with promoting prison contraband, six counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of marijuana, and possession of a controlled substance outside its original device.

Lewis is being held at the Ulster County Jail in lieu of $250 cash bail or $500 secured bond and is scheduled to reappear in the Town of Wawarsing Court on Thursday.
