A Columbia woman will have her first court appearance today after trying to smuggle drugs into the Boone County Jail.
Matyia Tucker, 24, was charged on Monday with delivery of a controlled substance. She’s being held on a $200,000 cash-only bond. She’s scheduled for her initial arraignment this afternoon.
According to court records, Tucker attempted to mail two strips of an opioid-replacement therapy to a person in custody. After intercepting the drug, deputies listened to jail phone recordings, hearing Tucker and an inmate discuss their plans to smuggle drugs into the county jail.
