Prosecutors: Ex-sheriff found with drugs in jail
BENTON – Federal prosecutors say a former southern Illinois sheriff awaiting resentencing in a drug and witness-tampering case was found with cocaine and prescription drugs in his jail cell.
In a court filing, the U.S. government says former Gallatin County Sheriff Raymond Martin was transferred from a federal prison to the Williamson County jail. They say that while in that Marion lockup, guards found the cocaine and pills.
It isn't clear how Martin got the drugs or whether he'll face new charges.
