The 23 year-old prison officer was arrested yesterday morning at 10.20am on suspicion of misconduct in public office, possession of criminal property and being concerned in the supply of Class A and B drugs.

Two women, aged 55 and 26 were also arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to “convey prohibited articles into a prison”,  and possession with intent to supply Class A & B drugs.

Detective Chief Inspector Brian Foster, from the PSNI’s Criminal Investigation Branch, said: “During the searches in HMP Maghaberry and in the Lisburn and Dungannon areas today, detectives seized a quantity of suspected Class A and Class B controlled drugs and drugs paraphernalia.”

Head of the Northern Ireland Prison Service, Ronnie Armour, added: “I welcome the result of today’s joint operation with the Police Service of Northern Ireland. Removing dangerous drugs from Maghaberry will help to keep staff and prisoners safe. I would commend everyone involved in this operation.”
