Police: Guard Tried To Sneak Drugs Into Prison

NORFOLK, Mass. (AP) - Police have charged a Massachusetts prison guard with trying to smuggle drugs into the facility to sell to inmates. 

Steven Frazer, of Cumberland, Rhode Island, was arrested Monday and charged with conspiracy to possess a controlled substance with intent to distribute. 

Prosecutors say the MCI-Norfolk corrections officer met with a cooperating witness.

Police say the witness gave Frazer 40 Suboxone strips, 24 packs of synthetic marijuana and $2,500 in cash Sunday in Attleboro. Prosecutors say investigators recorded the meeting before Frazer was arrested. 

His public defender did not return a call for comment. 

Another MCI-Norfolk guard was sentenced earlier this year for smuggling drugs.
