woman caught trying to smuggle cigarette, money and pills into the Louisville jail



A woman was caught Thursday hiding a cigarette, money and pills inside her body in an attempt to smuggle them into the Louisville jail, according to an arrest citation.

Ronesha Gilliam, 30, of Louisville, was originally booked into Louisville Metro Corrections in December on assault charges. Following Thursday's incident, she now faces additional charges of promoting contraband in the first degree and tampering with physical evidence.

According to the arrest citation, Gilliam attempted to enter the jail around 3 p.m.
Thursday with a cigarette, Benadryl and money hidden inside her vagina. Gilliam was asked if she had any contraband before entering the jail and still attempted to conceal the items from corrections officers.

Gilliam was aware that the items were prohibited, the report said.

Gilliam was arraigned Friday on the charges of promoting contraband and tampering with physical evidence, both Class D felonies. She remains in custody in the Louisville jail on a $10,000 cash bond. Her next court date is Feb. 6.

Gilliam was previously arrested Dec. 14 after she allegedly ran over her sister and another victim with her car, according to an arrest citation. She was charged with two counts of second-degree assault.
