Woman accused of bringing pot to inmate

Police:?Coney admitted to act

CLEARFIELD — A Darby woman has been accused of passing marijuana to a state prison inmate.

Madir Destiny Coney, 23, is charged with felony counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance-contraband/inmate and misdemeanor counts of intentional possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The charges stem from a Sunday incident at the State Correctional Institution at Houtzdale.

Police said that, as Coney was visiting an inmate, they were sitting side by side. The inmate reportedly reached into Coney’s pockets and retrieved a substance.

The two separated, and as he walked away, the inmate allegedly ingested the contraband and was spotted on a surveillance video.

In an interview with a state trooper, Coney allegedly admitted she had marijuana in her pocket and that the inmate did take some of it from her, according to the affidavit.

She also stated she had a small amount of marijuana in her purse, which was locked in a locker in the lobby. When the purse was retrieved from the locker, Coney pulled out a sandwich bag with two balloons of marijuana hidden inside a condom, according to the report.

Coney waived her right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday during centralized court in Clearfield County. Her bail was lowered from $50,000 to $10,000 unsecured.
