A woman who police said had contraband drugs in her vehicle didn't have far to go when charges were filed against her, because she was already a York County Prison inmate.
Jillian E. Decker, 34, who police said is from the Etters area, was charged Oct. 17 with possessing contraband on prison grounds -- a second-degree felony -- and possession of unprescribed drugs, a second-degree misdemeanor. She remains in prison on $2,500 bail
According to state police, Decker was in the prison's outmate work-release program, which allowed her to keep her car in the inmate parking lot on prison grounds.
After getting a tip from another inmate that Decker had drugs in her car, prison officials called police. On Aug. 13, troopers found a bottle of liquid Valium and preloaded Victoza needles in the car, according to charging documents. Victoza is a diabetes medication; police said some people illegally use the drug to lose weight.
At the time, Decker was serving a three-month sentence for child endangerment, according to court records.
