Bag With Drugs Is Found Near Van In Front Of Jail

A woman appearing Wednesday morning in General Sessions Court was charged with drug possession and other counts after a bag was found behind her parked van in front of the county jail on East Depot Street, sheriff's Deputy Chuck Humphreys said in a report.

Lisa Dawn Sentelle, 32, of 101 Holt Court, was charged with attempted introduction of drugs into a secure facility, possession of a Schedule II drug, possession of drug paraphernalia and public intoxication.

Deputies received a call from a jail corrections officer about 9:50 a.m. Wednesday about a bag "that was set out onto the road behind a van that was parked at Depot Street at the jail," the report said.

A police dog and deputy were requested to determine the contents of the bag.

The dog alerted when he sniffed the bag, which contained Sentelle's identification, four syringes, and a pack of cigarettes that was wrapped in plastic and placed inside a rubber glove, the report said.

A Suboxone strip was later found inside the package, the report said.

Sentelle was located in General Sessions Court. She was asked about the cigarette pack.

"She stated she thought she was going to get time in court today and was planning to conceal the package inside her person and take it into the jail," the report said.

Sentelle told deputies the syringes belonged to a friend "and that they had been using cocaine and they were going to get rid of them," the report said.

Sentelle was unsteady on her feet, had slurred speech "and stated she had shot up last night," the report said.

She was scheduled to appear today in General Sessions Court.
