Monterey Woman Charged with Introduction of Contraband into Penal Institution

According to the report, Pope told the officer her name was Michelle Pope and admitted to stealing several items.

Through investigation, authorities determined her true identity.

Reportedly, Pope said she lied because she thought there was a warrant out for her arrest.

The officer reported that Pope seemed lethargic. When asked, Pope admitted to using methamphetamine and other drugs prior to going to Wal Mart.

The report said Pope was asked if she had anything illegal on her person before entering the jail. Pope said she did not have anything illegal.

Once inside the jail, officers found a plastic baggie inside Pope’s bra which contained a small amount of a crystal substance believed to be methamphetamine.

Pope’s bond has been set at 5,500 dollars.
