An Oklahoma corrections officer is now in prison with the same inmates he used to guard after a search revealed meth and other drugs in a burrito he attempted to bring into the facility.

Corrections officer, 20-year-old Kevin Clevon Mayo, was taken into custody on Friday at a jail in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he was employed after sheriff’s deputies reportedly discovered drugs and other contraband on him.

Mayo had started working at the Tulsa County Jail on March 1st after passing a background check and required training, according to Fox23.

After receiving a tip from an informant, deputies searched Mayo’s bag when he came into work and discovered that his lunch was more than it appeared.

Inside of his burrito was two grams of meth, crushed hydrocodone, and four grams of weed.

A further inspection also revealed other contraband, including two phone chargers, lighters, and rolling papers concealed inside of a pack of chewing gum.

Police also recovered a cell phone hidden inside of the man’s sock.

Mayo originally claimed that he knew nothing about the items, but police said he later confessed to bringing the phone for a prisoner.

Mayo remains in custody pending $40,250 bail on three counts of possessing with the intent to distribute drugs, and one count of carrying contraband, possessing drug paraphernalia, and conspiring to commit a felony.

This was the second arrest of a Tulsa Sheriff’s Office corrections officer in only one week.

Rickardo Williams, who also started working at the Tulsa jail in March, was charged with two counts of sexual battery on June 2 after allegedly touching inmates inappropriately

Rickardo Williams, who also began working at the jail in March, was charged with sexual battery on June 2nd.

The man is accused of inappropriately touching inmates.

An arrest warrant affidavit obtained by KJRH indicated that an inmate asserted that Williams told him to “bend over.”

The corrections officer then grabbed and slapped him on his rear end, according to the inmate.

A second prisoner claimed Williams grabbed prisoners’ private areas.

The incidents were recorded on surveillance footage, but Williams argues that he cannot remember the incidents.
