A Patterson man convicted on several drug charges has made his stay behind bars a little bit longer.

According to a Facebook post from the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office, 33-year-old Anthony Variet, who is already a resident at the St. Mary Parish Law Enforcement Center, allegedly decided it was a good idea to bring more contraband into the jail with the help of a female friend on the outside and a corrections deputy.

Well, as you may have guessed, the corrections deputy alerted detectives, who allowed Variet's alleged idea to happen long enough for them to catch the woman - 30-year-old Keona Phillips of Patterson - as well.

Variet now has a charge of conspiracy to enter contraband into a penal institution added to his rap sheet.

Phillips was arrested for conspiracy to enter contraband into a penal institution.
