Holiday woman tried to bring needles, pipes into Pasco jail, deputies say

LAND O'LAKES – The deputies who picked up Jennifer Lee Bailey on a warrant asked her twice if she had any contraband items, such as drugs, paraphernalia or weapons.

Both times she said she didn't have anything.

But as Bailey entered the intake area of the Land O'Lakes jail, where she was being booked on a warrant for failing to appear in court, her story changed, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report.

Bailey, 29, revealed she was holding two glass pipes and two syringes inside herself.

In the strip search room, the report states, Bailey "reached into the back of her jeans and pulled out (two) needles." One needle had an orange cap on the point. On the other, the cap was removed before the needle.

She removed a glass pipe, too, the report states. There was a second pipe, Bailey told them, but it was cracked on the end and hurt to remove.

Deputies took her to a hospital to have the second pipe extracted. The report states residue in the pipe tested positive for cocaine.

Bailey, of Holiday, was charged with introduction of contraband and cocaine possession, on top of her other warrant charges. She remained Thursday at the Land O'Lakes jail without bail.
