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.
