Former inmate indicted on illicit drug charges – Huntington Herald Dispatch

HUNTINGTON – A former Western Regional Jail inmate has been indicted on charges alleging she brought heroin into the facility.

Emily Jade Corns, 24, was indicted on one count transporting a controlled substance into a jail, third-offense driving under the influence, third offense driving on a suspended or revoked license because of DUI convictions and obstructing an officer, according to July indictments unsealed Friday.

According to a criminal complaint filed in Cabell County Magistrate Court, Huntington police were called June 1 to West 10th Street for a woman passed out in a running vehicle blocking the alley between Madison and Monroe avenues. The driver, identified as Corns, admitted to injecting around a tenth of a gram of heroin into a vein on the back of her hand around an hour prior, complaints state.

Corns’ driver’s license had been revoked for three previous DUI convictions in July 2014, June 2015 and September 2015, complaints state. After failing field sobriety testing Thursday, Corns was arrested and transported to Western Regional Jail.

While being booked just after 9 p.m., corrections officers found a plastic bag containing a third of a gram of heroin hidden inside Corns’ body, the criminal complaint alleges.

Corns’ arrest is the latest surrounding drugs at the Barboursville Jail.

The facility reported at least eight overdoses in a three-week span from April to May. Huntington Police Chief Joe Ciccarelli previously said the drugs responsible for five of those overdoses came from a female arrestee who had hidden 15 grams of heroin deep in a body cavity.

In addition to Corns, two former Western Regional Jail employees have been charged with drug-related felonies in the recent past.

The West Virginia Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety announced last week an aim at combating contraband through education and stronger enforcement through the appointment of retired Putnam Sheriff deputy Jack Luikart as the department’s director of correctional substance abuse control.
