Last week, vigilant staff at the Morgan County Correctional Complex stopped an attempt to introduce contraband into the facility. Last weekend Merenda Sue Jones, a Food Steward, was observed on camera dropping a package off within the secure confines of the facility.

Upon further investigation, the package was found to contain 3.03 oz. of a substance that field-tested positive for marijuana. Morgan County Sheriff’s Department was notified and Jones was arrested; she was charged with felony introduction of contraband into a penal facility per TCA Code 36-19-201.
