Prison guard caught with pot
A guard for the Oak Park Heights prison was charged Friday with smuggling marijuana into an inmate, the Pioneer Press reported. The woman, officials allege, smuggled in small amounts of the drug on two occasions and also admitted to having an eight-month long relationship with the inmate. The Star Tribune, which picked up the AP's version of the story, said the guard was fired March 2 for violating policies against sexual misconduct between officers and inmates and also for bringing contraband into the prison. The article also said allegation details include the inmate paying her $1000 for each delivery of marijuana.
