Morgan - A 21-year-old correctional officer at Calhoun State Prison has been arrested after a drug sweep by drug-sniffing dogs at the prison.

Kanoshia Bradley, who lives on Thompkins Avenue in Albany, was found with marijuana, cocaine, and crack cocaine on May 10th. She was charged with possession with intent to distribute all three substances, crossing guard lines with illegal drugs, and violation of her oath of office.

Agent Chris Jordan, with the Pataula Drug Task Force says, "Your crime rates and stuff go up inside prisons when you have drugs involved. You have more fights, stabbings, that type stuff."

Bradley was fired from her prison guard job and released after posting a $10,000 bond.
