ANGOLA - A security officer at the Louisiana State Penitentiary has been accused of trying to bring marijuana and alcohol into the prison.

West Felciana Parish sheriff's Maj. Archer Lee says 21-year-old Darius Montgomery, of Woodville, Miss., was arrested after contraband was found late Wednesday.

Lee described the contraband as a small amount of marijuana and an alcoholic beverage. He told The Advocate that the alcohol was found in a water bottle.

Montgomery was booked with introduction of contraband into a penal institution. It couldn't be determined if he had an attorney.
