Montgomery, AL - A corrections officer with the Montgomery City Jail and two other people were arrested and charged with trafficking cocaine and marijuana Tuesday, police said.
A drug investigation by the Montgomery Police Department's Special Operations Unit led to the search of a residence at 1220 Marlow Drive.
During a search of the residence, police found 7.8 pounds of marijuana, 1.5 ounces of cocaine, one .25-caliber handgun and a stolen .40-caliber pistol.
Lakevia Robinson, 30, was arrested and charged with trafficking cocaine and marijuana.
"Robinson was at the time employed as a city of Montgomery corrections officer," said Lt. Scott Martino, Montgomery police spokesman. "She has since resigned from her position."
Police did not say if Robinson was selling drugs to prisoners, nor would they say if they had any leads as to were Robinson got her supply.
"We can't really tell you a whole lot right now because we are still looking into a lot of things," said Montgomery Police Chief Arthur Baylor.
Also arrested were Terrance Caffey, 30, and Anthony Felder, 34.
Caffey and Felder were arrested and charged with trafficking cocaine and marijuana.
Baylor was vocal about the behavior of his staff.
"I want the citizens to understand that this police department will not tolerate crooked employees with the police department," Baylor said.
The three individuals were placed in Montgomery County Detention Facility, each with a $100,000 bond.
