BATON ROUGE, La. (WVLA/WGMB)– A crackdown on contraband at Elayn Hunt Correctional Center has landed a former prison cadet in jail.

A search of King’s vehicle turned up .10 ounces of marijuana.
St. Gabriel Police booked King into the Iberville Parish Prison on one count each of Introduction of Contraband into a Penal Institution and Malfeasance in Office charges.

King had been a corrections cadet at Elayn Hunt Correctional Center since October 2018. The Department is ending his employment based on the fact that he is a probationary employee.
