Contraband through county jail walls

Deputies on the night shift Monday saw something unusual on the surveilance camera.

Around 10:30 p.m. jailers saw a man, Troy Keeney, standing outside the jail attempting to smuggle contraband inside through a crack in the wall. The contraband turned out to be a knife Keeney was trying to pass to someone in the jail.

Deputies approached Keeney in attempt to take him into custody. Keeney ran from the deputies and after a brief chase they caught him. Keeney resisted arrest, fighting the deputies. He was taken into custody.

Keeney appeared in Mayes County District Court Tuesday via video conference. He was advised of his rights and told he had a felony charge. Gore informed him that attempting to bring contraband into a jail can carry up to 10 years in the Oklahoma Department of Corrections. His case was continued to Sept. 26. Per the states suggestion, his bond was set at $10,000 and he was remanded to the custody of the Mayes County Jail.

It is not clear who the recipent was inside the jail.

Keeney has been in the jail before and has previous charges of obtaining a controlled dangerous substance by forged or altered prescription and public intoxication.
