Two Facing Charges After Failed Drug, Phone Drop Over Century Prison Fence

May 29, 2020

Two people are facing charges after a failed attempt to deliver drugs and phones over the fence to an inmate at  Century Correctional Institution.

Robert Perry Hunt-Wilson, age 31 of Inverness, Florida, and Stephanie Norrell Clayborn, age 33 of Hernando, FL, were charged with felony possession of of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office responded to a suspicious vehicle complaint in the 600 block of Elsie Davis. They located a silver Nissan with Hunt-Wilson getting out of the driver’s seat. He told deputies that he and Clayborn had been walking a trail, and she walked off when they returned.

Inside the car, deputies found two large bundles wrapped in black electrical tape in the floorboard. Inside the first bundle, deputies found what appeared to be a bag of marijuana and five cell phones. Inside the second bundle, they found four phones, a pack of Newport cigarettes and ear buds. There were several clear plastic baggies in the glove compartment, and a smoking pipe and a bag of marijuana in the center console. Deputies also found a pair of night vision goggles in the backseat.

Hunt- Wilson told deputies he was along for the ride with Clayborn in an attempt to make $400 for delivering the bundles. He said he overheard Clayborn on the phone with a Century Correctional Institution inmate named “Bud” about dropping off the phones.

After being located in the woods, Clayborn told deputies they drove from south Florida to make a drop at the Century prison for inmate “Bud Thorn”. She said Hunt-Wilson attempted the drop by got scared when he heard a guard say he was about to do a perimeter check. She said the drop would have involved throwing the two bundles over the fence at a predetermined location.

Both had outstanding warrants in other states that would not extradite them from Florida.

Hunt-Wilson remained in the Escambia County Jail with bond set at $5,500 and Clayborn was jailed with bond set at $6,000.

    Tom, Century CI has a well stocked Library. Probably better than most Libraries in small towns. As for the outrageous cost of an outgoing phone call, that has nothing to do with the Florida DOC. That is a company called Securus they supply service to most prison and jail systems!

    OMG, there IS a Bud Thorn locked up at the minimum camp of Century CI!

    You never admit to anything; make them prove it in a court of law.

    The cellphones are banned to help insure the safety of witnesses that testified against prisoners and to helo make it harder for prisoners to run their criminal enterprises from behind. Bars..

    Okay I have mixed opinions on this, of course the drugs charges should stick and they should know better. However regarding the phones, To my understanding the per minute rates to use the prison phone system is no different than price gouging at the rates they are charging people to call lawyers , family members etc. The problem would fix itself if it weren’t for greed in the prison system. Focus should be on rehabilitation like for instance a library with a computer lab of donated books and computers. Its not rocket science, plenty of other states do just that and more to help inmates readjust once out.

    Woww! And such a long drive from south Florida! What “waisted” trip!

    These people are so bad that other states don’t want them. Oh well I guess we the tax payers of Florida will have to foot the bill for their attorney fees, and most likely room and board for a short while. We need to make sure they are comfortable while they visit the great state of Florida.

    “After being located in the woods, Clayborn…”

    Something tells me she wasn’t too hard to locate in the woods with the neon hair.

    Oh her hair…I’d love to see what her ‘hairdresser’ looks like!

    I am confused how that hairstyle would leave one inconspicuous while romping through the woods to make a prison drop.
