Illegal substances found at jail, hospital

Illegal substances were discovered in two unexpected--and very public--places Tuesday.
•An inmate at Bedford County Jail managed to smuggle in 2.2 grams of marijuana, an official discovered while reviewing security video.
Jail Administrator Ronnie Prince alleged Coby Allan Davis, 30, of Cedar Glades Circle was seem pulling 2.2 grams of marijuana and showed it to another person.
A charge of introducing contraband into a penal institution was added to charges of public intoxication, unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of a firearm while intoxicated.
•Thirteen grams of crystal methamphetamine were found by nurses at Vanderbilt Bedford Hospital.
The meth was in a small bag wedged behind a bed in a hallway and was found during cleaning.
Knife concealed
A man allegedly concealing a knife in his clothing was arrested after his girlfriend allegedly threw him out of their home late Tuesday, a Bedford County Sheriff’s Office report said.
Arriving deputies found Keith William Johnson, 31, lying on his back in the middle of Unionville-Deason Road shortly before midnight, wearing only pajama pants. He identified himself as “Kevin” instead of Keith, according to the report.
Johnson, who deputies said smelled of alcohol and appeared intoxicated, allegedly reached several times toward a knife in his pajamas. He was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, criminal impersonation and public intoxication.
•A chain saw, ratchet set and 5 gallons of gas were stolen from a normally-locked shed at a home in the 2700 block of Highway 64 West on Monday afternoon.
