An Floyd County Jail inmate faced additional charges Wednesday after he allegedly tried to flush drugs down a toilet in the jail.
According to jail records:
Jeremy Lebron Harper, 25, of 10 Clearvine Circle, was charged with several felonies including: possession of cocaine, possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, two counts of unlawful for jail inmates to possess any controlled substance or drugs and distribution of marijuana as well as several misdemeanors: three misdemeanor counts of obstruction and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
Harper, who was originally arrested Tuesday on charges of driving without a license and felony probation violation, had suspected marijuana and cocaine behind the guardline in the jail Wednesday.
When confronted by three jail officers, Harper ran and attempted to flush the drugs down the toilet in a nearby cell. The drugs were packaged inside individual bags for distribution.
No bond was set for Harper Wednesday night.
