Woman charged with smuggling pot into jail

January 30, 2014

A Durant woman is accused of smuggling marijuana into the jail in a tube of toothpaste.

Crystal Dawn Crumby, 37, was charged Wednesday with bringing contraband into the jail.

According to an affidavit by Sheriff’s Deputy Windy Bridges, a member of the jail staff informed him in December that Crumby dropped off a package of hygiene items for inmate Richard Nunez, and inside the toothpaste were straws.

The affidavit states that inside one of the straws, all of which had been sealed shut, was a green, leafy substance that tested positive for marijuana. The other straws contained matches.

A warrant was issued for Crumby’s arrest.

In other crimes, Carl Joe Wilson Jr., 48, Mead, was charged Wednesday with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.

He was arrested Sunday by Durant Master Police Officer Shane Walker who pulled over the vehicle Wilson was driving due to it weaving back and forth in the lane and across the fog line numerous times, according to an affidavit.

The affidavit states Wilson had an odor of marijuana on him which he claimed was because people he had been splitting wood with that day had been smoking it.

He agreed to a search of the vehicle, according to the affidavit, and no drugs were found inside. Walker then asked him to remove a cap he was wearing and when he did, a baggie containing 7.1 grams of a crystal substance was revealed. Wilson claimed it was not his and that he was taking it to someone else.
