Drug charges at jail


A Wellston woman faces two felony charges after she reportedly brought drugs into the Lincoln County Jail in Chandler and also disseminated them.

Sarah Dawn Brumley, 38, is accused of bringing drugs into the jail in late December and being in possession of them as an inmate.

Associate District Judge Sheila Kirk on Jan. 4 found probable cause to detain Brumley and set a $50,000 bond.

Brumley made her initial appearance before Judge Kirk on Jan. 11. The judge set a pre-preliminary hearing for Brumley at 1:30 p.m., Feb. 18, before Special Judge Emily Mueller.

Count 1 against Brumley accuses her of bringing controlled drugs, contraband, into the Lincoln County Jail on Dec. 29, 2020, by smuggling it in when committed by the court.

Court records state that crime is punishable by imprisonment in a state prison for three years to life.

Count 2 charges her with disseminating contraband, controlled drugs, to inmates in the jail on Dec. 29, 2020.

That crime is punishable in state prison for 20 years to life.

Supplemental information filed in the case by Assistant DA David Ball states that Brumley was convicted of first degree burglary on July 7, 2005 and sentenced to seven years in prison.

On the same day, she also was convicted of second degree forgery and handed a seven-year prison term.
