Former Citrus Co.Sheriff deputy , Donna Hopkins (Harrison)was suspended from Newport Tn Police Dept. for helping inmates smuggle contra band items into the Cocke Co. Tn Sheriffs Dept.Jail.She sewed a zippered pocket into her clothing and was backing up to cell doors to let inmates get the items.She was also taking items and hiding items at prearranged locations that the jail trustees would be working on certain day , so they could take it into the jail and give to other inmates. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is conducting a investigation. Newport Police Dept.separated (fired) her from the department.Earlier in the year she was put on probation for having a inappropriate relationship with a convicted felon (murder charge dropped down to manslaughter in drug deal gone bad). You can find part of the story on the Newport Plain Talk newspaper web page.Charges will probably be filed soon after investigation is completed.
