A St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office corrections employee arrested Wednesday is accused of bringing contraband into the jail.

Zedric Davis, 20, of 225 Mechanic St. in Franklin, was arrested on counts of malfeasance in office, bringing contraband into a penal institution and obstruction of justice in an internal investigation into the crime, according to the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Davis admitted to bringing in one package but was later found with another two that contained tobacco and cell phones, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Davis was booked into the St. Mary Parish jail and later transferred to another jurisdiction, although it was not immediately available Thursday afternoon where he was transferred.
