Unicoi County Sheriff Mike Hensley says a jail employee is facing charges for bringing drugs into jail.

Faith A. Smith was a jail dietitian and according to investigators she met with a family member of one inmate and received Roxicodone and a diabetic syringe.

According to Sheriff Hensley, because Smith was a jail employee she was not searched and was able to get the drugs past the correction officer.

Smith is now charged with entering drugs into a penal facility.
