WARTBURG, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The Tennessee Department of Corrections arrested four people, including one employee, accused having drugs and trying to sneak contraband into Morgan Co. Correctional Complex.

Lori Hensley, a nurse at the facility, stands accused of trying to bring in contraband and possessing Oxycodone. Shelia Mcbee and Ronema Widener were both arrested on drug charges, while Shannon Hunt is charged with trying to bring in a cell phone.
