Loaded handgun found in Bibb County Jail

- Authorities are investigating after a loaded gun was found at the Bibb County Jail. 

Last Wednesday afternoon, a husband of a female inmate contacted the jail staff after his wife told him there could possibly be a gun inside the female section of the jail. Corrections deputies later found a small .22 caliber handgun, which was loaded with one bullet. 

According to the Bibb County Sheriff's Office, a female inmate reportedly hid the weapon inside her "body cavity" as she was processed into the jail. 

Investigators said inmate Tiffany Robinson, 42, of Macon, originally possessed the gun when it was brought into the jail. Then, the weapon was found inside the personal belongings assigned to another inmate, 41-year-old Jamie Singleton, who's also from Macon. 

Authorities are seeking warrants on both inmates for the charge of possession of drugs, weapons, or alcohol by inmates.
