Pot, pills found during jail strip search

A Spokane woman set to serve four months in jail for money laundering has been charged with another felony after corrections deputies found drugs during a strip search.

Rebecca Suzanne Townley, 33, had pills and suspected marijuana concealed in a condom when a corrections deputy searched her during booking on July 27, according to the Spokane County Sheriff's Office.

Another deputy also saw the contraband during the search, according to court documents.

Townley later admitted to investigators that she'd smuggled the drugs into the jail, documents say.

She appeared in Superior Court on Friday on a charge of prisoner in possession of a controlled substance.
