More Drugs Found in Pike Jail
A Pikeville woman is facing felony charges after corrections officers allegedly found her to be in possession of more that three dozen pills in the Pike County Detention Center. Pike Commonwealth’s Attorney Rick Bartley said the charges against Shellie Duncan, 35, are part of a “steady stream” of promoting contraband cases. Bartley said his office takes the cases very seriously and those caught with drugs in jail are often made examples for other inmates who may try to sneak drugs into the jail.
