jail cell bars,

FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) – A 61-year-old woman has been charged with giving methamphetamine to her jailed son.

The Farmington Daily-Times reports that Juliann Webster was charged with furnishing drugs to a prisoner and held Friday on a $5,000 bond. Her son, Matthew Webster, is also facing charges in connection with last week’s incident.

Court documents say the 33-year-old inmate was being escorted back to the San Juan County Adult Detention Center after a medical appointment when he retrieved a packet of meth from the wheel of the transport vehicle.

The documents say Juliann Webster had been in the parking lot when the guards arrived at the medical center.

Her attorney, Steve Murphy, declined to comment Friday, saying he hadn’t yet reviewed the case.

Court records show Matthew Webster hasn’t yet hired legal representation. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
