GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Emmanuel Markus Glaser, 36, who is serving two concurrent one-year sentences in the Alachua County Jail, was charged yesterday with smuggling contraband into the jail after allegedly making arrangements with the wife of another inmate to pick up drugs that were left in a trash can outside the jail.

The drugs, 3.5 grams of methamphetamine, were reportedly discovered when Glaser was searched while coming back into the jail for the night on February 27.

Post Miranda, Glaser reportedly said the wife of another inmate in his pod had placed a cup with drugs attached to the underside of the lid in a trash can in front of the visitors’ entrance to the jail; Glaser, as a trustee, has more access to this area than other inmates in the jail. Glaser reportedly said the cup was placed in the trash can at some point during the night of February 25, and he found the cup on the morning of February 26 when he checked the trash cans. He said he took the cup and hid it near the trustee lunch area until he was able to bring it inside on February 27.

Glaser reportedly said the agreement was that if he brought the drugs into the jail, the other inmate would give him half the drugs to trade with or sell to other inmates for commissary money. Glaser reportedly said he did the same thing last week, and that is reportedly being investigated.

Glaser was arrested in September 2023 for felony petit theft; at the time of the arrest, he was on probation for grand theft of a vehicle. He was sentenced to two concurrent 364-day sentences, followed by three years of probation. He is designated as a violent offender of special concern.

The new charges include smuggling contraband into a detention facility, possession of methamphetamine, and possession of drug equipment. Judge Thomas Jaworski set bail at $120,000, which Glaser will have to post before being released after his jail sentence is complete.

Articles about arrests are based on reports from law enforcement agencies. The charges listed are taken from the arrest report and/or court records and are only accusations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
