Langford allegedly informed Officer Nicewonger that her friend (an inmate at the prison) requested approximately one week ago that she bring weed and Zanax into the prison and give it to him, the complaint continues.

She further allegedly advised that she brought the drugs into the prison by placing them inside the finger portion of a latex glove and that once the drugs were in the glove, she placed them in her private area, according to the complaint.
