Detectives assigned to the Detention Investigations Unit have charged two male inmates and two females with Introduction of a Contraband Into a Detention Facility after a cellular phone was found in the Pinellas County Jail.

Where:
The incident occurred in the G-Wing of maximum security at the Pinellas County Jail located at 14400 49th Street North, in Clearwater.

When:
The incident occurred at about 2:45 p.m. on Thursday, August 1, 2019.

Why/How:
According to detectives, a random search was being conducted in the G-Wing of maximum security at the Pinellas County Jail on August 1, 2019, when a cellular phone was found in the corridor.

While conducting their investigation, detectives determined 39-year-old inmate Cedric Burton was in possession of the cellular phone prior to the search.

Detectives also found images and text conversations on the cellular phone, between 24-year-old inmate Devin Russell and his girlfriend, 24-year-old Kaylyn Fudge.

Detectives say both inmates identified 37-year-old Terrika Hall, as supplying the phone. Hall is a Food Service Provider for Trinity Services Group and works in the kitchen at the Pinellas County Jail. Trinity Services Group provides the food service program within the Pinellas County Jail. Both Burton and Russell were assigned to the kitchen and worked with Hall.

Through their investigation, detectives discovered Fudge purchased the cellular phone for Russell on June 27, 2019, and provided it to Hall. Fudge also provided Hall an extra phone battery and $200.00 as payment for bringing the phone to Russell. Hall was also paid $100.00 weekly to bring extra phone batteries for Russell.

Burton and Russell admitted to possessing the cellular phone while in the Pinellas County Jail and had the charge of Introduction of Contraband into a Detention Facility added to their current charges.

On August 8, 2019, Hall and Fudge were interviewed by detectives and admitted to the allegations.

Hall and Fudge were arrested and charged with one count of Introduction of Contraband into a Detention Facility and transported to the Pinellas County Jail.

The investigation continues.
