Inmate Faces Smuggling Rap After Jailers Find Large Pill Stash In His Secret Hiding Spot
Meet Joshua Fletcher.
The 34-year-old Floridian was arrested early yesterday on a warrant charging him with violating terms of a probation sentence imposed following his guilty plea to a misdemeanor domestic violence charge.
As Fletcher was being booked into the Duval County lockup in Jacksonville, jailers discovered that he had a large stash of the antidepressant Alprazolam. Specifically, Fletcher was found with 54 pills, which, an officer reported, “appeared to come from the suspect's anus.”
Seen above, Fletcher was charged with smuggling contraband into a correctional facility, a felony for which he is jailed in lieu of $10,000 bond. Fletcher, scheduled for a March 21 arraignment, has previously been convicted of burglary, cocaine possession, trespass, credit card fraud, and marijuana possession.
The pills from inside Fletcher were “taken to the property room,” according to an arrest report that does not disclose which poor public servant had to gather up and count the pieces of evidence.
