Police are seeking a third man, the daughter’s boyfriend, who reportedly accompanied her on the trip from Gray, Ga.

Colquitt County Correctional Institution officers became suspicious when a woman, later identified as Halie Brooke Jones, showed up at an area where road equipment is kept with a man in a white Mazda B2500.

Jones gave her father, Jerry Lee Jones, 45, an inmate at the institution, a hug, Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office Inv. Jerome Burgess said. The location where she and the boyfriend traveled to was not at the prison’s current location at 200 S. Vandenburg Road, but at the old prison located behind Colquitt County Jail.

The behavior of Halie Jones and her boyfriend, who were on prison property, was considered “extremely suspicious” by officials, sheriff’s reports said. They claimed they had car trouble and left a short time later.

Prison officers began checking the area after their departure and one found a freezer bag containing several cell phone chargers. They then found sugar and Coffee Mate inside a prisoner’s bag inside a bus used to transport prisoners.

A deputy’s drug dog alerted on an orange bucket inside the bus where officers found a cell phone and charger, bags of suspected marijuana and suspected methamphetamine, a glass pipe, five cigarette lighters and six packs of cigarette rolling papers, the reports said.

Halie Jones, 19, 309 Autumn Ridge Trail, Gray, has been charged with nine counts of delivering items prohibited by inmates. The boyfriend faces the same charges.

Jerry Jones, 45, was charged with possession of marijuana with intent, items prohibited by inmates and possession of methamphetamine with intent.
