When Quentin Latham, 17, was arrested for Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 3 over 28 Grams but under 200 grams, he dropped three pills on the floor of the book-in room at the local jail. They had not been found at the time of the traffic stop that led to his arrest. Video in the book-in room captured Blake Adam Friddle, 21, a trustee at Hopkins County Jail, as he was performing the duties of a Trustee. Friddle picked up the three pills and returned to the general population of the jail.

Friddle is being held for a misdemeanor charge of possession and an indictment for Surety of Bond Engage in Organized Crime. Friddle is now being held on at total of $40,000 in bonds.
