A Twin Falls woman and her boyfriend now have their own jail cells after Twin Falls police said the woman was caught soaking paper in drugs and trying to mail the papers to her already-jailed boyfriend.

This morning's Twin Falls Times-News reports that 41-year-old Marla Heck is set for a Friday, Nov. 15 preliminary hearing where she faces two counts of manufacturing or delivering a controlled substance, conspiracy to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance and possessing a controlled substance, all felonies.

Heck's boyfriend, Robert Swett, was already locked up and charged with stealing a BB gun, when jail officials said Heck told Swett that she would write a letter to her boyfriend after spreading liquefied oxycodone onto the paper. Prosecutors said Swett even asked Heck to lace another letter with methamphetamine.

Police said when they arrested Heck, she admitted to contaminating a letter with morphine. Law enforcement said that during a search of Heck's residence they seized a number of drugs not prescribed to the woman.
