Baldwin woman accused of hiding handcuff key in chicken sandwich at State Prison

Jacksonville, FL — A Baldwin woman has been arrested for allegedly concealing a plastic handcuff key in a chicken sandwich, at Florida State Prison.

48-year-old Trisha Denlinger has been booked in to the Bradford County Jail for the introduction and possession of certain articles unlawfully on Department of Corrections state property.

The affidavit complaint says Denlinger arranged to visit her husband, who’s an inmate at FSP. She allegedly purchased a sealed chicken sandwich, unsealed it, and put it in the microwave to heat up. She then gave the sandwich to a Correctional Officer to search, and he found a plastic handcuff key in it, according to the arrest record.

The affidavit says Denlinger made it through three prison fences and four gates to get to that point. She went through a metal detector, and her personal items went through an x-ray scanner, according to FDC.

Denlinger did speak with investigators, but her comments have been redacted from the arrest report.
