MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - A drug dog alerted when he came near a car at the Colquitt County jail last Friday. It turned out to be the car of a nurse who works at the jail.

The nurse was identified as 33-year-old Jennifer Sanchez.

A search of Sanchez's vehicle resulted in the seizure of methamphetamine (ice), marijuana, tobacco, rolling papers, cigarette lighters and Saran wrap.

The Colquitt Co. Sheriff's Office requested assistance from GBI's Sylvester Regional Office to investigate allegations that drugs were being smuggled into the jail by Sanchez.

The GBI agents took warrants against Sanchez for Possession of Methamphetamine with Intent to Distribute, Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Distribute, and Bringing within Guard Lines Drugs and Other Prohibited Articles.

Sanchez was booked into the Colquitt County jail.
