    smuggling charge

    A Fair Haven man jailed on a charge of felony domestic assault had another criminal charge added when he was allegedly caught smuggling marijuana into the Rutland jail, where heís being held on $75,000 bail.

    Henry Lewis, 44, was arrested last weekend after Fair Haven police say he assaulted a woman inside the Liberty Street Discount Beverage Store. Lewis pleaded innocent this week in Rutland criminal court to a charge of aggravated domestic assault in the first degree and misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct, providing false information and resisting arrest.

    But before he was arraigned on those charges, Vermont State Police issued him a citation for two additional offenses ó transporting regulated drugs into a jail and providing false information to a police officer.

    Those charges stemmed, police say, from the discovery of roughly 0.3 ounces of marijuana hidden in Lewisí body cavity when he was taken to the jail.

    Lewis also allegedly gave police the false name of Cyrus Morris and the false age of 42.

    He was issued a citation to appear in Rutland criminal court Sept. 15 to answer to the new offenses.
