Contraband Arrests at Rogers State Prison and Bacon Probation Detention Center

As of July 2010, The GDC Office of Professional Standards, in conjunction with local & federal law enforcement partners, have investigated or arrested approximately 909 staff and civilians for introducing contraband into prisons throughout the state.

On December 29, near Rogers State Prison, a Tattnall County Sheriff’s Deputy pulled over a suspicious vehicle. There were three civilians in the vehicle, William Lewis, Demykyll Moultry and Jamie Burris. The Deputy requested a vehicle search from the driver, Moultry, and he denied. The Deputy then asked the driver to step out of the vehicle. When Moultry stepped out of the vehicle, the Deputy noticed a large amount of tobacco and a cellular phone on the front passenger side of the vehicle. The Deputy then asked the other two passengers, William Lewis and Jamie Burris, to step out of the vehicle. All three of the vehicle occupants were detained and the Deputy searched the vehicle. While conducting the search of the vehicle, the Deputy discovered the following contraband: 1 digital scale, 23 bags of tobacco wrapped in clear plastic, 12 packs of tobacco wrapped in clear plastic and electrical tape, 18 packs of rolling paper, 15 cellular phones, 15 cellular chargers, 3 cellular batteries, 1 box of clear plastic wrap, 2 rolls of electrical tape, 1 roll of duct tape and 2 containers of Bugler loose tobacco. Civilians Lewis, Moultry and Burris were arrested by Tattnall County Sheriff’s Office.

On January 1, during a supervised search of vehicles entering the Bacon Probation Detention Center, the Georgia Department of Corrections Canine Unit alerted on a vehicle that was driven by visitor John Michael Wheeler. Officers conducted a search of the vehicle and discovered 1 marijuana cigarette located inside of the glove compartment. Visitor Wheeler was arrested by Bacon County Sheriffs Department.
