ARCADIA — A Lake County woman has been arrested for bringing drugs and other contraband into the DeSoto Correctional Institution, according to a DeSoto County Jail booking report.

On October 13, DeSoto County Sheriff’s officers were dispatched to DCI in reference to the subject who allegedly introduced contraband into the facility.

DCSO conducted a strip search of the visitor, later identified as Denise Patricia Knight, 48, of 3500 block of Trout Ave., Fruitland Park, FL.

While officers conducted the strip search, a black ball that was wrapped with electrical tape fell “out of the suspect’s crotch area”, according to the report.

DCI staff unwrapped the item, finding several pills, possible marijuana and tobacco.

The arresting officer took possession of a bag containing several white Xanax pills, a bag containing a green “‘clustery’ substance” and what appeared to be a bag containing tobacco.

The white pills were later identified as Xanax bars, totaled as 79 bars and a total weight of 19.40 grams.

Based on experience, the officer recognized the “‘clustery’ green substance” to be marijuana, which weighed out as 2.25 grams, unpackaged.

Knight was placed under arrest for smuggling a controlled substance into a state correctional facility, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of marijuana less than 20 grams and possession and or use of drug paraphernalia.

Knight is currently being detained at DeSoto County Jail with a bond of $10,000.
