A woman faces drug smuggling charges after she was caught trying to sneak drugs into Warren County Jail taped to her leg.
The woman, Connie Randolph, 36, has been charged with possession of meth, simple possession of drugs, and introduction of contraband into a penal institution. She will face hearing May 10.
Randolph was taken into custody at her probation supervisor’s office for violating her probation. McMinnville police officer Justin Cobble spoke to her as he was transporting her to the jail and warned her about trying to bring in any illegal substances.
“I told her that taking any contraband into the jail would be a felony instead of a misdemeanor,” Cobble said he advised Randolph on the drive over to the jail, noting the woman said she did not have anything on her person. It was soon found out she was lying.
“The corrections officer located several items taped to the inside of her right leg,” Cobble revealed of the search conducted on Randolph prior to her being placed into the general population at the jail. “The items discovered were two plastic baggies containing what is believed to methamphetamine, a pill believed to be suboxone, and a pill believed to be alprazolam.”
