TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A Tallahassee woman has been arrested, accused of mailing a card with drugs and nude pictures concealed in it to a Leon County jail inmate.

Amanda C. Combs, 31, was booked into the Leon County Detention Center on Tuesday on a charge of introducing contraband into a detention facility.

Coombs mailed suboxone and two nude pictures of herself to the jail by sealing it in the back of a tri-folded card, according to a probable cause affidavit. Both items are prohibited from being brought into the jail.

Staff at the jail's mail room intercepted the card on Aug. 3, 2018, preventing it from being delivered to an inmate. The staff became suspicious upon noticing that the last two parts of the card had been glued closed.

The card had the name of a woman who did not appear on the inmate's visitation list, but an investigator determined that the pictures in the card were from a person the inmate had listed as his wife.

The investigator identified Combs by comparing Combs' visitation photograph to the mailed photographs.

Another way the investigator obtained information about the contraband was by listening to phone calls to Amanda Combs on the Inmate Phone system.

On Aug. 1, Combs said in a call to the inmate that she's putting something in the mail for "you and you only, don't tell anybody else because I couldn't get any more than one today," the court document said. The inmate said he got nothing that day.

In an Aug. 2, phone call, the court document said, the inmate said "can't wait for stuff to come, your pictures."

Based on the evidence, Comb was arrested. Combs remained in jail Thursday on a $2,500 bond.
