A Jacksonville narc has some paperwork problems, an Alabama prison guard heads for federal prison, and more. Let's get to it:In Jacksonville, Florida, a Jacksonville sheriff's detective was arrested last Thursday for falsely filling out forms that document cash, narcotics, or other seized property. Narcotics Detective Bryan Burnett is charged with falsifying documents and official misconduct. At least two forms were falsified, with the amount of money involved under $200. Authorities said the falsifications were not done for monetary gain or Burnett would have been charged with theft.
In York, Pennsylvania, a York County prison guard was arrested Tuesday for plotting to smuggle suboxone into the York County Prison. Officer Joshua Martinez, 31, went down after authorities were informed that he would be getting the drug from an inmate's girlfriend and surveilled him picking up a package from her mailbox. He was then pulled over by state troopers, who found 75 suboxone strips and $2,900 cash. Martinez, the inmates, and the inmate's girlfriend are charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, criminal conspiracy, and contraband. [Ed: Suboxone and methadone in the prisons would be a helpful measure for authorities to take.]
In Mobile, Alabama, a state prison guard was sentenced Tuesday to seven years in federal prison after being convicted of plotting to bring drugs into the Fountain Correctional Facility in Atmore. Guard Wiggins Washington, 52, went down after he agreed to meet with a man he thought was supplying methamphetamine, but who was actually working with authorities, who had been informed about the scheme. Washington pleaded guilty to possess meth with intent to distribute and to carrying a firearm in relation to a drug trafficking charge. That second charge garnered a mandatory minimum five years.
