SPRINGVILLE (AP) — An Alabama prison officer has resigned following his arrest on charges of having illegal drugs at the St. Clair prison in Springville.
The Department of Corrections says 26-year-old Ivan Caldwell of Birmingham was arrested Monday on charges of trafficking drugs, promoting prison contraband and violating a pistol license.
The agency says Caldwell quit following his arrest.
Court records aren't available to show whether Caldwell has a lawyer to speak on his behalf.
Caldwell had worked for the prison system since 2017. The department says a vehicle search showed he had packages of methamphetamine and heroin.
He was booked into the St. Clair County Jail.
