Tuesday, November 18, 2014 | 07:03am

NASHVILLE – The Department of Correction is continuously working to combat the introduction of contraband into our facilities.  Last night, officers at Deberry Special Needs Facility noticed two people behaving suspiciously near the perimeter of Riverbend Maximum Security Institution.  Officers approached the car which contained two people – Jasmine DeMoss and a male passenger.  Officers spoke with the couple then let them leave the area.

Due to the suspicious nature of the event, prison officials initiated a perimeter sweep of the facilities in the area.  During that search, four bags containing cell phones and chargers were discovered.  Office of Investigation and Compliance agents and the Probation and Parole Officer went to Ms. DeMoss’s home to question her about the items.  It was during this interview that Ms. DeMoss admitted tossing the items over the fence.  Ms. DeMoss is currently on probation for aggravated robbery. 

Ms. Moss has been arrested and the investigation is ongoing.
