|Coffee County inmate accused of hiding drugs in his body|
DOUGLAS, Ga. (WALB) -- A Coffee County inmate was processed into the jail, and he soon got more charges when methamphetamine was found in his possession.
Jail officials discovered the drugs while conducting a routine search of 51-year-old Jesse Walter Burkhalter's cell on March 16.
Officials said they think Burkhalter got the drugs past jail searches by concealing the methamphetamine inside a bodily orifice.
Two Coffee County inmates were treated at Coffee Regional Medical Center for drug intoxication after they possibly attempted to swallow the drug. Both inmates were medically cleared and returned to the jail.
