HAZARD — A Chavies woman is accused of attempting to sneak drugs into Kentucky River Regional Jail (KRRJ) on Tuesday.

Deputy Jailer Kevin Asher said Alma Sue Williams, 39, of Chavies was caught attempting to stuff Suboxone strips into a hole on the outside of the jail’s wall.

Williams was not an inmate at the time of the alleged incident.

According to an arrest citation, jail staff told Hazard Police Department (HPD) that they caught Williams on her hands and knees attempting to stuff the Suboxone strips into the wall.

After being read her Miranda Rights, HPD say Williams told them she was paid $120 to sneak drugs into the jail.

HPD arrested Williams on Tuesday and she was taken to KRRJ where she was lodged in.

She is facing a first-degree promoting contraband charge.

Williams posted a $5,000 surety bond on Wednesday.

She is scheduled to appear in the Perry County District Courtroom for arraignment on July 18 at 2:05 p.m.
