Leesburg -- A Lee County man is charged with using an 8-year-old girl to smuggle anti-anxiety pills to an inmate at the Lee County Jail.  

Bryan Ashley Pellicano is charged with taking a prohibitive substance within guard lines of the jail, use of a person under 17 to distribute a controlled substance, and distribution of a controlled substance.

Investigators say Pellicano sent the female inmate's 8-year-old daughter to the front desk with a book for her mother. Upon inspection of the book, guards found several pills of Clonazepam inside the binding of the book. The drug is also used to treat epilepsy.
