On November 2, 2020, during a perimeter check of the Lee County Detention Center, Corrections deputies found that a security fence had been cut near one of the cell blocks and that the exterior cell wall had been breached. The opening was just large enough to pass small objects into the cell area.
Lee County Investigators were notified of the incident and a review of surveillance video revealed an unknown black male cutting the fence and entering the area at the wall breach.
Corrections deputies recovered multiple items of Prison Contraband from the interior cell area to included Marijuana, cigarette lighters, cell phones, chargers, rolling papers, tools and electrical wire.
During the course of the Investigation, Jordan Treveon Armstead (19) from Opelika was developed as the suspect involved in the security fence and cell wall breach. He was arrested and charged with Promoting Prison Contraband in the First Degree, Criminal Trespass 2nd Degree and Criminal Mischief 3rd Degree.
He is being held in the Lee County jail on a $6,000.00 bond. Lee County Investigators also developed additional suspects in the facilitation of the crime.
Khyah Cymone Lewis (27) from Dadeville was arrested and charged with one count of Promoting Prison Contraband 1st Degree.

Jacquavious Jamar Greathouse (30) from Auburn was arrested and charged with one count of Promoting Prison Contraband 1st Degree.
Each suspect is being held in the Lee County jail on a $5,000.00 bond.
