Woman Smuggles Meth Into Jail
ALACHUA COUNTY-- It was a drug investigation that crystalized after a woman was booked into jail.
Investigators say one woman risked adding more time behind bars by smuggling drugs into the Alachua County Jail.
Two days after April Davis was arrested for grand theft, a detention center officer noticed her take out a white napkin from her shirt pocket.
The officer found a white chunky substance inside that turned out to be three point two grams of methamphetamine.
Officers did not detect the drugs when she first was searched.
Davis had hid the narcotics inside her body.
The Securepass machine that search the inmates don't pick up clear baggies or white substances it wasn't discovered.
When a detainee takes any contraband through the booking process they are risking a higher sentence.
In this case two felony charges and up to thirty five extra years in prison.
Davis was adamant about bringing the drugs in.
(Sgt. Brandon Kutner, Alachua County Sheriffs Office.) "She did say that she hid it specifically, because she didnt want to give the arresting officer who was from the Waldo Police Department the satisfaction of arresting her on a drug charge.
Davis is in jail on a fifty five thousand dollar bond awaiting sentencing for three different felony charges.
