BRUNSWICK, Ga. -

A Georgia woman and a Virginia man have pleaded guilty of placing marijuana and other contraband into baseballs tossed over the fence of a south Georgia prison.

Antonio Marcellus Jones, 33, of Hampton, Virginia, on Tuesday pleaded guilty to providing marijuana to an inmate.


Authorities say 33-year-old Chrystaline Armstrong of Waycross pleaded guilty to providing a cellphone to an inmate.

An FBI agent testified that the balls were loaded with marijuana, tobacco and a cellphone intended for an inmate.

FBI Special Agent William Kirkconnell said Jones and Armstrong had disassembled the baseballs at Armstrong's house in Waycross, stuffed the contraband inside and put the balls back together.

The agent testified that Jones then hurled them into federal prison's recreation yard.
