Jailer: Eight female inmates overdose after snorting heroin

Associated Press

CATLETTSBURG -- Authorities said eight female inmates were taken to the hospital after overdosing on heroin at a Kentucky jail.

News outlets reported Boyd County Detention Center Jailer Joe Burchett says it happened Saturday night. Burchett said the women were hospitalized after snorting heroin in a jail bathroom. They were treated with the overdose-reversing drug Narcan. All survived and were released hours later.

Inmate Felicia Hayes is accused of smuggling the drug into the jail when she was arrested on drug trafficking charges Thursday.

According to Burchett, the drug was likely secured in a body cavity, evading the standard strip search.

The facility doesn't have an X-ray machine.
