A prison guard was taken into custody after she was busted for attempting to smuggle drugs into the Elayn Hunt Correctional Facility, in Baton Rouge, LA.
23-year-old Nyeisha Davis was apprehended by the Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office and the Louisiana Department of Corrections.
Sources say that Davis is no longer employed at the prison and that she was on probationary employment when the incident occurred. She had been working there since September 2022.
During a routine scan, hidden drugs had been discovered inside of Davis’s body, officials say.
She was placed in the Iberville Parish Jail on several charges. These include introduction of contraband into a correctional facility, possession with the intent to sell marijuana, heroin, and methamphetamine, and malfeasance in office.
