Jailer fired, arrested for bringing drugs into Sequatchie County jail
Special Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have arrested and charged a now former jailer at the Sequatchie County Jail, who stands accused of bringing methamphetamine into the facility.
On August 6, while interviewing 21-year-old Nicole Brianna Harmon at the jail in connection to another, ongoing TBI investigation, Special Agents saw the woman attempt to hide a small, white bottle from their view.
When questioned about the bottle’s contents, Harmon admitted it contained methamphetamine and also admitted she previously brought the drug into the facility. The department subsequently terminated Harmon’s employment.
Agents arrested the Dunlap woman and charged her with one count of Introduction of Contraband into a Jail and booked her into the jail, from which authorities released her after she posted $10,000 bond.
