Do you ever wonder how prisoners get contraband items like drugs? I guess it comes as no surprise that some of the forbidden and illegal items come in with jail staff such as corrections officers.
In Texarkana, Ark a corrections officer who’d made frequent takeout food deliveries to the county jail was caught sneaking syringes inside tacos and marijuana under chili.
Jordan Michale Waller, 25, made two suspicious delivers one after the other one Saturday evening. He entered the Miller County jail with three pizzas at 3 a.m. and then twenty minutes later he brought in what appeared to be a large bag containing chili and tacos.
The jail sergeant became suspicious and searched the food. He found marijuana that had been formed into three round patties under some chili and a couple of syringes inside the tacos. When Waller was searched officers found methamphetamine and other drug paraphernalia.
Waller was charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia and furnishing prohibited items into a correctional facility.
Waller who had only worked at the lockup for two months was held in custody with his bond set at $100,000.
