A 36-year-old woman tried to bring methamphetamine in the Hernando County Jail on Thursday, according to the sheriff’s office.
Deborah Ann Linn, of Spring Hill, had been arrested on a methamphetamine possession charge. The arrest report stated that Linn was informed if she had any additional drugs on her while being booked at the jail, she could be given an additional charge of introducing contraband into a detention facility.
While being booked, a deputy saw Linn holding a small bag of methamphetamine in her hand.
Linn said she had pulled the bag out of her underwear, the report said.
The woman is being held on $15,000 bond.
Court records show that Linn received a possession of a controlled substance charge earlier this month, and was adjudicated guilty of possessing a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia in 2011.
In 2010, Linn avoided a guilty adjudication on the same charges, and served about two months in county jail.
Jail records show Linn was incarcerated in the county jail from July 2011 through January 2012 for violation of felony probation.
