Happy Meal box used to conceal jail contraband

Posted

A Parrish woman has been charged with promoting prison contraband after she left a McDonald's Happy Meal box filled with pills in a trash can at the Walker County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday afternoon.

Jennifer Allen, 24, intended for an inmate worker to pick up the contraband while cleaning the lobby and take it into the jail, according to a WCSO press release. The fast food container held 21 8 mg sublingual Buprenorphine/Naloxone pills, according to court documents. WCSO also provided a photo showing several additional kinds of contraband such as cigarettes taken from the box. 

A corrections officer saw Allen throw the box into the trash. The new camera system installed at the WCSO was used to identify Allen. 

Several inmates are facing conspiracy charges, according to the release.
