A West Virginia husband and wife allegedly took a loaded pistol and drugs to a state prison in Indiana County.

Natasha Nichole Breiding and Edward Joseph Breiding, both 23, of Dallas, W.Va., are free on $25,000 bond each in connection with the incident Friday at SCI Pine Grove in White Township.

State police said around 10:50 a.m. a prison K9 officer found marijuana in Natasha Breiding's purse and pills in Edward Breiding's wallet, as well as the firearm in their vehicle.

The pair was arraigned Friday by District Judge Jennifer Rega on charges of contraband, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and weapons or implements for escape.

Preliminary hearings are scheduled for July 2.
