Man tries to bring pharmacy into jail
A local man being arrested on a violation of probation warrant was reportedly caught in an attempt to bring a smorgasbord of pharmaceuticals into the jail last week Joshua Lynne Batey, 29, faces charges of introducing contraband into a penal institution, possession of Schedule II and IV drugs for resale and tampering with evidence. According to Sheriff Patrick Ray, after being brought to the jail on March 21, Batey was taken by a correctional officer to a room to complete his dress out. During the process, the officer noticed a bottle with a red lid near Batey’s testicles.
