A PRISON officer has been arrested on suspicion of smuggling drugs into a young offenders’ institution.
The Ministry of Justice last night confirmed that an unnamed officer at Deerbolt Young Offenders’ Institution, near Barnard Castle, is being questioned by police over the alleged supply of Class A drugs.
The officer, who lives in County Durham, was detained at the Category C training prison on Friday. He has been suspended while investigations continue.
My comment: Waiting for the outcome before commenting.
