ST. FRANCISVILLE — West Feliciana Parish Sheriff J. Austin Daniel said Thursday that one of his correctional officers was arrested after being accused of bringing contraband into the parish’s detention center.

Daniel said Glenn Ford Jr., 26, of St. Francisville, was booked at the detention center Wednesday on one count of malfeasance in office after an investigation by Warden Randy Holden.

Ford is accused of bringing a cell phone into the prison for an inmate, Daniel said.

Ford, who had been employed with the Sheriff’s Office for a year, was released on $50,000 bail.
