Woman Charged With Mailing Drug-Laced Photo To Jailed Boyfriend

A second arrest has been made after a drug-laced piece of mail was intercepted last week at the Johnston County Jail in Smithfield.

Danielle Brooks Cherry, 33, of the 100 block of Holly Grove Road, Benson allegedly mailed a letter to her boyfriend in jail.  Inside the letter was a photograph that Cherry had allegedly laced with opiates.

Cherry was arrested Friday on four felony drug offenses including possession with intent to manufacture sell or deliver a controlled substance.

Last week, her boyfriend Anthony Wayne Barnes, 34, of Holly Grove Road, Benson, was arrested on similar charges.

Barnes has been in jail since his arrest on May 13th for felony probation violation.

Cherry was confined in the Johnston County Jail under a $50,000 bond.
