In disturbing news, a Montgomery County prison guard was arrested for attempting to smuggle drugs over the weekend.

Antwan Giles is a corrections officer at Kilby Correctional Facility in Montgomery County, where he worked for three years.

Authorities will not say how they found out, but they did say after searching his vehicle, they found five types of prescriptions. None of those prescriptions belonged to Giles.

Giles was arrested and booked in the Montgomery Co. jail. He is charged with trafficking, promoting prison contraband, and several counts of possession of a controlled substance. He immediately resigned from his position.

I'm sure this wasn't the first time it's happened, and no it will not be the last - but how do keep people like him accountable for their actions?
