Woman charged with bringing contraband into JBCC

A Sapulpa woman has been charged with bringing contraband (drugs) into a jail/penal institution, a felony.

Nancy Davis, 61, was arrested after allegedly trying to sneak marijuana and Xanax into the Jackie Brannon Correctional Center on Sunday.  

She was charged with the felony on Monday. She allegedly was at the correctional center to visit her son.  

Davis was searched upon entering the correctional center and nothing was found, according to a police affidavit. However, after getting inside, she allegedly went to the restroom.  

According to an affidavit written by Pittsburg County Dep. Daniel McHenry, a female correctional officer asked to search her again. Davis then asked the officer to come inside the bathroom with her. She is alleged to have told the officer there that she had brought two packages containing the contraband.

The officer confiscated the packages and it was then that the sheriff’s office was called and Davis was placed under arrest.

If convicted, she could serve one-to-five years in prison and a $100 to $1,000 fine.
