An inmate at the Henderson County Jail is facing several charges after an investigation by the Henderson Deputy Jailers, Henderson Sheriff’s Deputies and the Pennyrile Narcotics Task Force into inmates attempting to bring in illegal drugs and tobacco into the Henderson County Detention Center.

The Henderson County Sheriff’s Office reported Thursday that Jefraye Warfield, of Franklin, was served a warrant for multiple charges after deputies from the jail intercepted a quantity of illegal contraband early Sunday morning during surveillance and the investigation. Deputies reportedly found a bag of marijuana, a large bag of loose tobacco, several cans of smokeless tobacco, rolling papers and packages of cigarettes.
