Man accused of smuggling weed into WilCo jail, mixing it in peanut butter
A man already in custody at the Williamson County Jail is now facing additional charges after he allegedly smuggled in marijuana and mixed it with peanut butter.
According to the arrest affidavit, Gabriel Higdon, 22, is charged with prohibited substance or item in a correctional facility, a third degree felony. Online records show he was in jail for public intoxication.
It happened Thursday, May 4. Court documents say a correctional officer was in a cell area with Higdon when he heard him say, "man, I'm high as f***." The officer could also smell marijuana … and then found a bowl of peanut butter mixed with it.
Higdon was taken to the booking area of the jail where he was strip searched. And that's when a plastic bag fell from Higdon's buttocks, according to the affidavit. Inside the bag officers found marijuana, four clonazepam pills (an anti-anxiety drug) and 15 prescription pain pills.
Higdon remains in custody at the Williamson County Jail with a $40,500 bond.
