MEMPHIS - Tennessee Department of Correction Internal Affairs agents have charged a Germantown, Tennessee woman with introducing contraband into a penal facility.  Kimberly Underwood, 50, is accused of mailing drugs and cash into at least two state prisons.

Underwood is related to and associated with several TDOC inmates.  Agents believe she sent cocaine and several hundred dollars in cash to the Southeastern Tennessee State Regional Correctional Facility in Bledsoe County and the West Tennessee State Penitentiary in Lauderdale County.

Internal Affairs agents obtained a warrant to search Underwood's home at 8077 Cape Charles Cove in Germantown where they uncovered evidence to support the criminal charges.  Underwood is being held in the Bledsoe County jail. 

Additional charges could come against inmates and others in connection with the investigation.
