Bibb County Sheriff’s Office investigators discovered a plot by a male inmate of the Bibb County jail and a female to have drugs mailed into the jail.

Between November 3, 2022, and November 10,2022, investigators intercepted phone conversations between 34-year-old James Douglas Adkins, inmate, and 31-year-old Amber Leigh Abney, of Macon, where Adkins and Abney discussed her mailing in drugs to him.

On November 10, 2022, investigators along with other deputies and U.S. Marshals of the Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force conducted a search warrant on Abney’s residence in the 3300 block of Fairburn Avenue. During the search of the residence deputies found drugs and communication devices used to conduct the conversations to mail drugs into the Bibb County jail.

Abney was taken into custody at her residence, and was taken to the Bibb County jail, and charged with two counts of Use of Communications Facilities during the Commission of a Felony, Possession of Marijuana, three counts of Conspiracy to Violate Georgia Controlled Substance Act, Possession of Schedule I Drugs, and Criminal Street Gang Activities. She is being held on a bond of $11,860.00 at this time.

Adkins was already in the Bibb County Jail on unrelated charges and had the charges of two counts of Attempt or Conspiracy to Violate the Georgia Controlled Substance Act, two counts of Use of Communications Facilities during the Commission of Felony, and Criminal Street Gang Activities. He is being held without bond at this time.
