Texarkana Police: Inmates Given Pot, Tobacco by Jailer

TEXARKANA, AR - A local man who worked as a corrections officer for the Bi-State Jail has been arrested.

The Texarkana Police Department (TPD) says Kyle Johnson, 22, was bringing in prohibited items for inmates.

The TPD says it was tipped off about Johnson's alleged actions by a confidential informant for its Criminal Investigation Division.

The information developed led undercover investigators to believe the planned contraband introduction into the facility consisted of marijuana and tobacco.

Johnson has been charged with furnishing, possessing, or using prohibited articles in a correctional facility, which is a felony.
