A former Caldwell Correctional Center officer is in jail, accused of selling marijuana inside the jail while he was employed as a guard, authorities said Wednesday.

Derrick Cartridge, 23, of Columbia, was arrested Tuesday on charges of simple possession of marijuana, malfeasance in office, introduction of contraband into a correctional facility and conspiracy to distribute marijuana, Caldwell Parish Sheriff Steve May said.

May said he received information that Cartridge was bringing marijuana into the prison and selling it to inmates while on duty. "We started an investigation and found out he was about to buy some marijuana for an inmate and when we checked him, he had money and marijuana on him," he said.

Cartridge was booked into the Caldwell Parish Jail at the courthouse, not the correctional center where he had been employed since June 22, May said.

Bond was set at $15,000.

^ right. Just think of how much easier it would be to control prison populations if they were all high. Just give them a playstation or xbox and some doritos. And withhold the liquids, they are in prison after all.
