A Corinth man was charged with felony introduction of narcotics into a correctional facility, according to the Tishomingo County Sheriff’s Office.
Nathan Lee Shelton, 31, 132A County Road 405, Corinth, was arrested Tuesday, the sheriff’s office said. Shelton was arrested after the deputies looked into a situation involving people camping on property that did not belong to them, a news release said.
At that time, Shelton was allegedly found to have drug paraphernalia and narcotic residue. He was arrested for the alleged paraphernalia and transported to the Tishomingo County Jail, the news release added.
Once Shelton was at the jail, correctional officers allegedly found some hidden methamphetamine on him, the sheriff’s office said.
Shelton’s bond was set at $1,000.
