Two women face multiple charges after trying to smuggle drugs into the Clark County Jail.

“It’s just unfortunate people are continually trying to bring drugs into the facility,” Clark County Sheriff’s Department Chief Deputy Scottie Maples told WLKY.

He said the most recent attempt was foiled last month. Maples described it as a “very coordinated effort” to get drugs into the prison.

“There was oxycodone, Zantac, a cell phone, Suboxone strips – all packaged so they could be inserted into a body cavity,” he said.

But the drugs and the phone never made it past the dumpster, right outside the sheriff’s office. Clark County District Attorney Jeremy Mull charged Caitlin Burns and Jinger Hines with multiple drug offenses after the plan was uncovered by a detective assigned to work at the jail.

According to court documents, the pair planned to leave the drugs outside to be picked up by a detained worker and smuggled back inside by their boyfriends.

“The plan was to hide the drugs in a bag of chips and put the bag of chips in a place where it might look like a trash can,” Mull explained.

It turns out that this information was intercepted by this detective just in time. Just 24 hours later, according to the police, these women appeared, dressed in black, ready to make this fall.

“They seemed to think it was a fairly easy task to drop off a bag of chips, like, a bag of chips with drugs in it, and then they were done with it,” Maples said.

He said Burns and Hines, who were watched from inside by multiple cameras and five detectives on the street, were shocked to find themselves handcuffed.

Mull said he had a clear message not just for them, but for anyone else who was plotting to get drugs inside the prison: “I’m going to charge you with the highest level of offenses allowed by the law and I will seek to have you convicted and sent to prison.”

Burns and Hines each face four felony drug charges, but detectives say more charges against others are possible.
