FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say the accomplice to an Arizona fugitive was acting as a drug mule for a white supremacy group weeks before she helped him escape from prison.
But Casslyn Mae Welch wasn't charged with narcotics violations until she was tied to the escape of three inmates from the Arizona state prison near Kingman.
Mohave County sheriff's spokeswoman Trish Carter says investigators were performing random checks of vehicles in the prison's parking lot in June when they discovered what was believed to be marijuana and heroin in Welch's vehicle.
Welch was visiting her fiance and cousin, John McCluskey, at the time.
Authorities say Welch threw wire cutters over a prison fence, allowing McCluskey and two others to slice their way out on July 31. She and McCluskey remain fugitives.
