COLUMBIA, Miss. - A guard at the Marion-Walthall Regional Correctional Facility in Columbia has been arrested for allegedly bringing contraband into the prison.

Authorities say 22-year-old Cedeterius Jackson was arrested late Thursday on a charge of introduction of an electronic device into a correctional facility.

Maj. Zack Guidroz tells WDAM-TV that Jackson attempted to bring a cellphone and a charger into the facility.

Jackson posted a $10,000 bond on Friday and was released. It was unknown if he is represented by an attorney.

Guidroz says Jackson has been fired and an investigation is ongoing. He did not say how long Jackson had been working as a corrections officer for the facility.
