According to Bartow County Sheriff Clark Millsap:
Tammy Sue Ragan has been jailed after an investigation into a cell phone located inside the Bartow County Jail.
Millsap stated deputies discovered the cell phone and launched an investigation to discover how it was brought into the jail.
The investigation lead deputies to Ragan, who worked for Trinity Food Service.
The service is contracted for providing food for inmates. Ragan allegedly developed a relationship with one of the inmates, purchased the phone and brought it to the inmate while she was working at the jail kitchen.
Ragan was charged with passing contraband to inmates behind the guard lines and interference with security measures at a correctional facility.
Ragan is being held at the Bartow County Jail awaiting bond hearing.
The two inmates were also charged with the same charges, Joseph Keith Moore, 27, of Cartersville; and Joseph Michael Lanning, 26, of Robertsdale, Alabama.
Both Moore and Lanning were being held in jail on probation violations charges prior to these two new charges.
