On Thursday, December 26, approximately 810 am, Barren County Detention Center officials received information that a subject would be attempting to smuggle in contraband at the Detention Center.  The subject, 47-year-old Timothy Riley, Glasgow, had been on Christmas furlough since December 23, 2013.  Riley was incarcerated for Violation of Diversion (Poss. Of Meth).

A mobile x-ray lab was called to the Detention Center to x-ray five subjects reporting back from Christmas furloughs.  Riley’s x-ray showed a cylindrical object inside his anal cavity.  When confronted with this information, Riley produced a 3-4 inch object and stated it was tobacco.  Further investigation revealed the substance was indeed tobacco.

Barren County Jailer Matt Mutter commented, “We want the inmates to know that we are very serious about combating contraband.  The substance found could easily have been meth, heroin, or another illegal drug.”

The incident is under investigation and criminal charges are possible, pending the outcome of the investigation.
