Prison guard charged with selling drugs

AGASSIZ (NEWS1130) – A prison guard at a maximum security prison in Agassiz has been charged with drug trafficking.

Cst. Tracy Wolbeck says 42-year-old Paul Fleming was arrested at the prison yesterday, accused of selling meth and marijuana at the Kent Institution.

“It’s obviously a big concern, for sure. It’s difficult for us, obviously, going in to make an arrest on someone that we consider partnerships with, so it’s a difficult dynamic for everybody involved.”

She says the RCMP has been working with Correctional Service Canada throughout the investigation.

Fleming was released and will appear in court January 29.

Of course there are drugs in prison.
It’s been happening forever and will continue to happen.
