LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Contraband hidden on an inmate's body led to additional charges after a Louisville Metro Department of Corrections employee found the items during a pat search, according to police.

A jail employee said Danyelle Kennedy, 26, was being booked early Tuesday morning for alcohol intoxication, possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, tampering with physical evidence and an improper container when the search was conducted.

According to an arrest report, the employee performing the search noticed an abnormality which could not be justified by the inmate. A strip search was conducted. Police said a small pill container holding two straws, two Xanax pills, a plastic bag of marijuana, a bag containing a white substance, and an empty plastic bag were recovered from the inmate's privates.

Kennedy now faces four additional charges including three felonies. The added charges are possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, tampering with physical evidence and promoting contraband.
