CHARLOTTE CO - The Sheriff's Office has installed a body scanner which allows for any person who has been newly arrested and is entering the jail to receive a full body scan which allows deputies to locate any contraband items that could be missed in a physical search. 

"It's led to a huge reduction in contraband entering the facility and we believe that word is getting out on the streets now that prevents people from even trying to get it in," Charlotte County Sheriff's Office Katie Heck said.
