According to Sheriff Martin Pace, individuals being booked are warned to be forthcoming about anything they have on their person. However, while being booked, a routine search by jail staff revealed that Uzzle had a small package of fentanyl and a small package of marijuana on her person.

She has now been charged with two counts of introducing contraband into a correctional facility.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Uzzle was still in Warren County Jail with a $5,000 bond set by Judge Jeff Crevitt on the contraband charges. The bond for the capias warrant has not yet been set.
