Tasha Nicole Hale
X-rays revealed that a Washington County jail inmate had drugs, tobacco and chewing gum stuffed in her "pelvic region," resulting in new charges, Sheriff Ed Graybeal said today.
Tasha Nicole Hale, 26, formerly of Washington College Road, reported to the jail on late Friday to serve 15 days on a previous charge.
Graybeal said investigators had received a tip that Hale was bringing contraband into the jail.
