A $20,000 bond was set Monday for a Magnolia man accused of trying to bring contraband into Tucker Prison Sunday.
Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set the bond after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge Corey Griffin Jr., 20, with eight counts of furnishing prohibited articles, two counts of possession of a controlled substance methamphetamine, and two counts of possession of a controlled substance marijuana.
Deputy Prosecutor Beth Carson told the court how Griffin was taken into custody by reading from an affidavit from Arkansas State Police Special Agent Scott Rosegrant.
Griffin said he would hire his own attorney and was told to come back to court Nov. 10.
