ANGOLA- A guard at the state penitentiary is on the other side of the cell walls after she was arrested on smuggling charges.

Investigators said Tuesday, LeAngela Handy was stuffing her bra with drugs and other illegal items and sneaking them into the prison.

"She had her a drug store," Warden Burl Cane said.

"She had crack cocaine, crystal meth, Lortab, Xanax, cocaine" and fake pot he said. In addition, Handy is accused of smuggling cigars into Angola along with a cell phone and cell phone charger. All items were hidden in the woman's bra.

Handy worked alone, the warden said. No other prison employees are believed to be part of the smuggling operation.  An informant helped break the case.
