NAPOLEONVILLE - A woman is in jail after she allegedly tried to hand off drugs to an offender being escorted by deputies inside the Assumption Parish courthouse. 

The Assumption Parish Sheriff's Office says deputies were moving a group of inmates from the courtroom area when Cathy Coreyell Phillips tried to hand drugs to one of those inmates. Phillips fled the area but authorities were later able to identify her and issue an arrest warrant.

She was located Feb. 21, 2020 when she was booked into the Ascension jail on unrelated charges. 

She was transferred and booked into the Assumption Parish Jail on charges of criminal conspiracy to introduce contraband into a penal institution and resisting an officer.

She was later released on bond.
