Corrections Officer Jailed for Letting Inmates Smuggle Drugs

HILLIARD | A Nassau County corrections officer has been arrested after authorities say he let inmates smuggle drugs into the county jail.

The Sheriff’s office says surveillance video shows Deputy Cody Wayne Flint-Davis allowing inmates to place a bag of drugs into a mop bucket which they brought into facility. The sheriff’s office says he also tipped inmates off about shakedowns and distributed illicit photos.

Sheriff Tommy Seagraves said inmates tried to bring in about 50 ecstasy pills. Only 19 were recovered.

Twenty-one-year-old Flint-Davis was arrested Friday on several charges including official misconduct and failure to perform the duty required by an officer.

His bail was set at $55,010. It is unclear if he has a lawyer.
