It's jailers gone wild this week. Let's get to it:

In Pittsburgh, an Allegheny County Jail corrections officer was arrested last Thursday after an investigation turned up marijuana in his locker and video showing him leaving pages of paper soaked in synthetic cannabinoids in an employee bathroom. Guard William Kemp III is facing multiple charges including bringing contraband into the jail.

In Moravia, New York, a state prison guard was arrested January 8 for allegedly smuggling drugs and a cell phone into the medium-security state prison. Guard Timothy Paoff went down after he was subjected to a search by the Office of Special Investigations and six large bundles of marijuana were recovered from his personal property. He is charged with official misconduct, bribery, and receiving and promoting prison contraband in the second degree. He resigned effective January 11.
