Floyd Co. woman accused of bringing contraband into prison

A Floyd County woman was arrested Monday after police say she brought drugs into the Floyd County Jail. Glenda Holbrook, 25, was arrested earlier this week on charges of first-degree wanton endangerment and first-degree promoting contraband. Holbrook then allegedly gave the pills to another inmate, who overdosed. According to Kentucky criminal code, a person is guilty of first-degree promoting contraband when he or she knowingly introduces dangerous contraband into a detention facility or a penitentiary; or when a person confined in a detention facility or a penitentiary knowingly makes, obtains, or possesses dangerous contraband. Both of the charges facing Holbrook are Class D felonies, and if found guilty she could receive 1 to 5 years imprisonment and fines of $1,000 to $10,000, according to Kentucky Penal Code. She remains in the Floyd County Detention Center on a $5,000 bond.
