HEROIN HIGHWAY TO HELL: Chesapeake Sheriff’s Deputy Jenis Leroy Plummer Jr. Arrested for Smuggling Heroin into Jail

NORFOLK, Va. – A Chesapeake Sheriff’s Deputy was arrested Feb. 8, 2019, on charges related to his role in smuggling heroin into the Chesapeake City Jail.

Chesapeake Sheriff Deputy Jenis Leroy Plummer charged with smuggling in and selling heroin at the Chesapeake Va. City Jail.

According to allegations in the indictment, from July 2017 through January 2019, Jenis Leroy Plummer Jr., 35, as a Chesapeake Sheriff’s Deputy at the Chesapeake City Jail, conspired with conspirators to smuggle heroin and other contraband into the Chesapeake City Jail. The indictment alleges that on Oct. 19, 2018, Plummer drove to a cul-de-sac on Horse Run Drive in Chesapeake and picked up a package containing contraband that a conspirator had left for him to retrieve.

The cul-de-sac show above on Horse Run Drive, was the pickup point for Plummer to retrieve heroin to transport to an inmate in the Chesapeake City Jail, say prosecutors. Plummer is out on $5,000 bond.

On that same day, Plummer used his position as a Chesapeake Sheriff’s Deputy to smuggle the contraband to an inmate in the jail. Plummer used his position as a Chesapeake Sheriff’s Deputy to obtain funds that he was not entitled to receive.

Prosecutors said that the Chesapeake Sheriff’s Office has provided significant assistance and full cooperation during the investigation.
