Contraband Arrests at GDC Facilities
As of July 2010, The GDC Office of Professional Standards, in conjunction with local & federal law enforcement partners, have investigated or arrested approximately 764 staff and civilians for introducing contraband into prisons throughout the state.
On September 5, at Montgomery State Prison, visitor Melissa Hagins was arrested by Montgomery County Sheriffâ€™s Deputies after she dropped off a package containing 15 packs of tobacco at the chicken houses located on Montgomery State Prison premises. The drop was made prior to her coming into the facility for visitation.
The Department of Corrections is committed to identifying and pursuing prosecution of those persons who attempt to introduce contraband into state facilities.
