North Carolina corrections officer arrested on drug charges

If you drive about two and a half hours west of Raleigh, you will come to North Carolina's Piedmont Correctional prison in Rowan County. A corrections officer who has spent a dozen years at the facility was arrested recently on drug charges, the county's sheriff's office said in a news release.

Law enforcement officials searched the sergeant's home and found what they said is a gram of heroin, 21 grams of marijuana, three handguns, ammo, drug paraphernalia and $5,700 in cash.

The 35-year-old was charged with maintaining a dwelling to sell a controlled substance, heroin possession and possession of marijuana.

Officers also arrested a 35-year-old man who they say lives in the same house. He was said to be in possession of a dozen grams of heroin and 21 grams of pot. He served time for manslaughter at the prison where the sergeant works, according to a TV news report.

He was charged with conspiracy to traffic heroin.

While those arrests were being carried out, officers also searched the home of a 37-year-old Salisbury woman, finding what they described as methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, among other items. She faces charges of conspiracy to traffic heroin by possession and possession of methamphetamine.

The penalties the three are facing include the very real possibility of spending years in prison upon conviction and sentencing. Anyone in similar circumstances should speak with a Raleigh criminal defense attorney before talking to police or prosecutors.
