Area narcotics detectives are investigating a suspected drug distribution operation inside the Rappahannock Regional Jail that was discovered last month when cocaine was found inside an inmate’s prosthetic leg, court records show.

According to an affidavit for a search warrant filed last week in Stafford Circuit Court by Detective R.D. Haney III, correctional officers received an anonymous tip about drugs being stashed in a certain cell. Jail officers raided the cell and found between 3 to 7 grams of cocaine inside the prosthetic leg, the affidavit states.

The names of the leg owner and others being investigated are listed in the search warrant, but are not being printed because apparently none of them had been charged in connection with this case as of Wednesday. The inmate with the prosthetic leg was put in jail by the Spotsylvania Sheriff’s Office on Jan. 11 on charges of pandering and possessing marijuana.
