Headline Goes Here

HOUSTON - Authorities are looking for a woman they said tried to sneak drugs to into jail.

Officials with the Harris County Sheriff's Office said Rachel Hankins sent letters to a jail facility in the 1200 block of Baker Street on several different occasions to two different inmates.

When the letters arrived to the jail, officials there noticed bulges in the envelope. When opened, investigators said they found marijuana inside.

Investigators said Hankins was clever enough not to put her name on the envelope, but left several fingerprints that they were able to use to identify her.

Hankins has been charged with prohibited substance in a correctional facility.
