Deputies say search of jail results in 3 arrests for contraband possession

CENTERVILLE, LA (WAFB) - A month after five inmates were booked on additional charges related to pictures and video of them in jail appearing online, a recent search of that same jail resulted in three more arrests for illegal contraband.

The St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office said Ronnie Jones, 26, of Bayou Vista; Murray Bridget, 35, of Patterson; and Fernando Ariano, 34, of Morgan City, each face a charge of possession of contraband in a penal institution.

The charges were made following a search of the St. Mary Parish Law Enforcement Center in Centerville on Wednesday.

Deputies said Jones had a small bag of synthetic marijuana on him, Bridget had a cell phone and Ariano was found carrying a SIM card.
