A Marion County Community Corrections guard is under investigation for allegedly smuggling cell phones and tobacco into a corrections facility.
Tony Gill, 37, quit his job Tuesday after officials confronted him with a stash of cell phones and tobacco found hidden in a wall at the detention unit on the second floor of Community Corrections headquarters, 147 E. Maryland St., Director Brian Barton said.
There are beds for 340 inmates in the headquarters.“He refused to submit to a search, quit and walked out,” Barton said. “If there’s enough evidence there, we will file charges.”
The Marion County Sheriff’s Department’s internal affairs unit is investigating, Barton said.
Sheriff Anderson, who most thought was a sure bet for re-election, isn't looking so invulnerable these days. People might begin asking who his Republican opponent, Steve Davis, is.
