A Prison Guard Has Been Charged With Smuggling Drugs In Rice Krispie Treats.

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — A guard was fired and arrested after attempting to smuggle prescription stimulant pills into a women's prison in South Carolina by concealing them in Rice Krispies treats, according to authorities.

According to the arrest warrants, Marcy Shaffer, 43, removed the treats from their original packaging, pushed the pills inside, and placed them in a plastic bag.

Shaffer was apprehended on Thursday while attempting to bring the treats into the Camille Graham Correctional Institution, according to a statement from the Department of Corrections.

According to arrest warrants, Shaffer concealed four amphetamine and dextroamphetamine pills in the treats and two more in a prescription bottle not labeled for the drugs.

The pills contain a simulant and are intended to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Shaffer is charged with possession of narcotics with intent to distribute, providing contraband to prisoners, and misconduct in office; court records do not indicate whether she has a lawyer.

If convicted of the contraband charge, Shaffer faces up to ten years in prison.
