1 min read

Authorities at the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office have intensified efforts to curb illegal contraband after a recent incident uncovered a dangerous substance smuggled into the facility.

On December 27, 2023, an envelope addressed to the Sheriff’s Office arrived, catching the attention of Inmate Services. Inside were two sheets of paper, later confirmed by the Georgia Bureau of Investigations (GBI) to contain fentanyl.

The package was intended for Inmate Justice Lusk, who faced charges including Felony Murder and Aggravated Assault. Further investigation revealed that the sender was none other than the inmate’s brother, Jacob Lusk. Both now face a combined count of 10 warrants, predominantly felony offenses.

This discovery underscores the risks faced by law enforcement personnel and emphasizes the ongoing mission to maintain security within the Gwinnett County Jail and the broader community.
