MOBERLY, Mo. (AP)- Two women have been arrested after authorities accused them of bringing marijuana to a central Missouri jail.

Officers with the North Missouri Drug Task Force and Moberly police arrested a 29-year-old woman from Harrison, Ark., and a 22-year-old Springfield woman after they allegedly brought marijuana to the Moberly Correctional Facility, where they were visiting an inmate.

KMIZ reports (http://bit.ly/1gQGaC0 ) the two women were arrested Saturday on a charge of delivery of a controlled substance to a correctional facility. They’re being held on $75,000 bond at the Randolph County Jail.

Authorities say two juveniles were also taken into protective custody and turned over to the Randolph County Juvenile Office.
