Sheriff: Pair Tried to Smuggle Heroin-laced Bible Into Jail

Saturday, 17 Jan 2015 08:52 AM

 Law enforcement officials in southwest Ohio say two people attempted to smuggle a heroin-laced Bible into the county justice center.

Hamilton County Sheriff's Office spokesman Mike Robison says an officer examined the Bible following a standard sweep of deliveries using a K-9 in December. The book was sent to the coroner's office for testing after the officer noticed a coffee-like stain.

The coroner's office confirmed the substance was heroin. A regional narcotics unit determined the stain contained about 30 to 40 hits of the narcotic.

Officials say 39-year-old Tehani Teepe sent the Bible to 28-year-old inmate Timothy King. Both have been charged with illegal conveyance of contraband into a correction facility.

No attorneys were listed for Teepe or King.
