MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Three people face charges after Bibb County deputies say they tried to get drugs inside the Bibb County Jail.
Deputies say they got a tip Monday about a “possible plan” by inmates to have drugs brought in from the outside.
Investigators say they monitored phone conversations from 40-year-old inmate John William Haygood to his girlfriend, in which they say he instructed her to drop off the drugs to him.
Haygood was in jail but on an outside work detail at the sheriff’s office’s car wash/gas pumps.
Investigators say they watched a friend of Haygood, 21-year-old Kyle Quinton Guilliams, drop off a package in the trash can at the 7th Street Macon-Bibb gas pumps. Investigators recovered the package and it contained about three grams of methamphetamine and tobacco contraband.
Deputies say Guilliams had been instructed to drop the package at the Hazel Street gas pumps but made the drop at the wrong location by accident.
Two days later, deputies took 39-year-old Shelia Marie Page into custody as she was attempting to drop off more tobacco contraband at the sheriff’s office’s Hazel Street gas pumps/car wash.
Deputies and investigators then went to an address in the 4300 block of Ayers Road and took Guilliams into custody.
Page was taken to the Bibb County Jail and charged with use of communication facility in commission of a felony involving controlled substances, use of communication facilities in drug transaction, attempt of conspiracy to violate Georgia controlled substance act and possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.
Guilliams was taken to the Bibb County Jail and charged with use of communication facilities in drug transaction, conspiracy to commit a felony and possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.
Both are being held without bond.
Haygood was returned to the main jail and faces additional charges of conspiracy to commit a felony, attempt of conspiracy to violate Georgia controlled substance act and use of communication facilities in drug transaction.
He is also being held without bond.
