Women caught smuggling drugs into prison

How authorities became aware Kinser planned to smuggle in contraband to inmate Harry Page, 33, is not detailed in the probable cause report.

It says Kinser, as was the case with Biggs, voluntarily removed the contents from her groin area when confronted and questioned by authorities, in the presence of a female corrections officer.

In addition to a plastic bag filled with tobacco and the pills, Kinser was transporting a feminine napkin that contained two bundles of tobacco, weighing nearly 129 grams.

Kinser told authorities that she was introducing the items at Page’s request, and intended to give them to him. She “further admitted she had introduced tobacco in the same manner several times and hydrocodone on one other occasion,” read the report.

Kevin Steiger, the public defender, was appointed to represent Kinser, who was given a first appearance before Wakulla County Judge Jill Walker. She paid a $4,500 surety bond, and was released.

Steiger was also appointed by Walker to represent Biggs, who paid a $1,500 bond and was released.

Plummer, with a history of prison terms for robbery, burglary and theft in Volusia County, is about three years away from completing a 19-year sentence for kidnapping in the commission of a carjacking conducted without a deadly weapon, in Brevard County.
