An inmate in the Henry County Jail was taken to the hospital Saturday after taking some drugs that another inmate had smuggled into the jail.

Henry County Sheriff Lane Perry said in an email about 6 p.m. that not many details were available because his office is investigating how this happened.

“This morning a female being processed into the jail smuggled drugs into the jail inside her person" Perry said in his email. "This afternoon, an inmate already in the jail took some of the drugs and had to be taken to the hospital."

He said the inmate remains hospitalized in stable condition.
