A former state prison guard was arrested and charged yesterday with trying to buy a large quantity of cocaine from an undercover agent, federal prosecutors said.
Before his arrest, Robinson was a corrections officer at the medium-security Maryland Correctional Institution in Jessup. Robinson was fired within the past two weeks, according to an affidavit filed in federal court by a Drug Enforcement Administration agent.
According to the affidavit filed in federal court yesterday, a man met with an undercover law enforcement agent Friday at Security Square Mall in Woodlawn.
The man and the agent discussed the man's buying 3 kilograms of cocaine and paying for the stash later. After the man took possession of about 1 kilo of cocaine, federal agents arrested him, according to prosecutors.
