MERCER, Pa. (AP) – State police are investigating a report that a woman smuggled drug-filled balloons to her western Pennsylvania inmate boyfriend by passing them mouth-to-mouth during a kiss.

Troopers say the incident happened Jan. 31 at the State Correctional Institution-Mercer.

The Associated Press is not naming the suspects because police say they won’t be charged unless and until crime lab tests confirm the presence of drugs.

Police say the 45-year-old Pittsburgh woman had the balloons in her mouth when she kissed the 46-year-old inmate that afternoon.

Police say prison officials recovered the balloons days later from the inmate’s bowel movement.

Police plan to charge the inmate with possessing contraband – in this case, an illegal drug – and to charge the woman with furnishing drugs to an inmate.
