A woman from Stone Mountain is in the Floyd County Jail charged with conspiracy to commit a felony, use of a communication facility to commit a felony and possession of items prohibited for inmates.

According to the arrest warrants, 40-year old Nicole Elena Edwards conspired with an inmate at the Floyd County Prison and another man through recorded phone calls, messages and emails to arrange a contraband drop at the Rome-Floyd Recycling Center on Lavender Drive.

The contraband included 98.9 grams of suspected marijuana and 29.6 grams of suspected methamphetamine.
