WOMAN SNEAKS METH IN JAIL WITH A BIBLE
Today’s Knuckle Head of the Day goes to Courtney Ford, 30 out of Tupelo Mississippi. Charged with possession of an controlled substance and trying to bring contraband into the jail, her bond has been set at $75,000.
According to Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson, “we search every item that is brought into the jail, and the property officer noticed something wrong. There was a bulge in the back cover of the Bible …we cut it open and found a powdery substance.” The Bible was dropped off Thursday for an inmate for methamphetamine trafficking, Stephen Jason Estes, was recently sentenced to 40 years in prison, and was awaiting transfer to a state prison when the Bible was left for him.
“We know he knew about it because that day, he kept asking where his Bible was, even before she dropped it off,” Johnson said. Johnson said he hopes the judge will now reverse the suspension. His bond on the new charge was set at $30,000.
