OKLAHOMA CITY - A nurse has been arrested after police say she brought contraband into the Oklahoma County Jail.

Amy Terhune, 41, is accused of bringing marijuana into the jail and passing it to an inmate.  According to investigators, a detention officer witnessed Terhune hand a brown paper bag to an inmate who then returned to his cell.

The Detention Officer confiscated the bag from the inmate. An examination of the bag found it to contain multiple baggies of a green leafy substance which resembled marijuana, according to authorities.

Terhune was booked on a count of possession of contraband in a penal institution. Armor Correctional Health Service, Terhune’s employer, is the contract medical health care provider for the jail.
