RIDGEVILLE, SC (WCSC) -

Dorchester County deputies arrested three people Sunday on charges they were attempting to deliver contraband into the Lieber Correctional Facility in Ridgeville.

Monique Alaina Davis, 22; Jaquell Antonio McCullum, 23; and Aushia Denise Williams, 23, each face one count of attempting to furnish a prisoner with contraband and one count of criminal conspiracy.

The charges were made in connection with a black book bag that contained tobacco, four cell phones, four cell phone chargers and one set of scales located in a wooded area, according to an affidavit. Investigators say these types of items are commonly thrown over security fences.

Deputies initially stopped when they saw a silver car stopped next to railroad tracks on Campbell Thicket Road at approximately 1:50 a.m. Sunday, according to an incident report.

The driver of the vehicle, identified as Williams, told the deputy she had come from Marion to visit some people when her car had overheated, the report states. Deputies say the vehicle temperature gauge showed the engine was in the normal operating range.

Williams told deputies there was a man in nearby woods but said she did not know who he was. The passenger in the vehicle, Davis, said she did not know the man's name, either, but said he took a black backpack into the woods with him and that she did not know its contents, the report states.

Davis told deputies she has an online relationship through Facebook with an inmate in Lieber and said she received a three-way phone call between that inmate and the man with the backpack during which the inmate asked her to bring the man to Lieber, the report states. Deputies say she admitted she knew McCullum was trying to get items into the prison.

Davis also told deputies she and Williams drove to Florence to pick up McCullum then dropped him off in the area of the Juvenile Justice facility, according to the incident report.

Deputies say they picked up McCullum in the area and notified Department of Corrections investigators who were able to locate the black book bag.

All three were booked into the detention facility pending the serving of warrants, the report states.
