CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. — A Colonial Heights woman was arrested for drug possession Wednesday after sheriff’s deputies said she brought heroin into the Chesterfield County jail. April Shaw, 33, faces up to 10 years in prison and a $2,500 fine for the Class 5 Felony.

Shaw was released on bond. She is due back in court February 4.
