MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, MO (KFVS) – Police say a man was caught sneaking drugs into the Mississippi County Detention Center and faces felony charges.
Terrance Webster, 39, of Bertrand, Mo. was arrested last weekend for driving while intoxicated.
While he was taken to jail, Corrections Officer William Dorris saw Webster remove a bag from his pants and place it in his mouth.
Webster then took the bag out of his mouth and threw it across the booking area. Corrections Officer Chris Wooten recovered the bag and placed it into evidence, according to police.
The bag contained a smaller bag of white powdery substance and two small pills.
The pills were identified as a hydrocodone/acetaminophen mixture, which is meant to treat pain.
Webster is charged with three counts of delivery and possession of a controlled substance in the county jail and tampering with physical evidence in a felony prosecution.
