ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Alaska State Troopers say a 33-year-old Anchorage man has been charged with smuggling drugs into an Anchorage women's prison.

Officials at Hiland Mountain Correctional Center told troopers they intercepted a package thrown over the prison fence Sept. 25 that contained heroin, syringes and chewing tobacco.

Troopers on Wednesday arrested Caley Gibbons. He's charged with two counts of promoting contraband, two counts of drug misconduct, criminal trespass and violating conditions of his release. He's being held at the Anchorage Jail with bail set at $10,000.

Investigators say he was attempting to get the package to 34-year-old Rebecca Pendleton, who has been released from custody.

Troopers say a warrant has been issued for her involvement in the case. She's been charged with promoting contraband, attempted drug misconduct and violating release conditions.
