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.
