The Lauderdale County Sheriff's Office arrested a corrections officer Wednesday after he admitted to trying to bring contraband into jail.
Deputies charged Mason Garrett with attempting to promote prison contraband. He was released on a $300 bond.
Deputies found cigarettes and what appeared to be drugs in his car. Officials say he was going to smuggle it into the jail, but Garrett truned himself in to a supervisor and admitted to what he was going to do.
Sheriff Rick Singleton said he believes Garrett was pressured by inmates to bring items in and he had possibly done it before.
Garrett was terminated. He worked for Lauderdale County Detention Center for three months.
