Twenty people, including inmates and officers, were indicted on racketeering charges and conspiracy in a racketeering case at a Maryland Correctional Facility in Jessup.
According to the U.S. State’s Attorney, documents said bribes were paid to officers to smuggle in contraband including narcotics, cell phones, unauthorized flash drives and tobacco.
Prison officers allegedly took bribes to smuggle narcotics for MCIJ inmates — including heroin, fentanyl, cocaine, ecstasy, marijuana and K2. The guards were able to sneak the contraband into the prison even though they are subject to searches.
