Former Prison Supervisor Is Arrested

A former supervisor at a prison in eastern Kentucky was arrested Wednesday on some surprising charges.

Rodney Trowbridge is accused of smuggling marijuana to inmates at the Lee Adjustment Center in Beatyville.

Trowbridge is charged with four counts of first-degree promoting contraband.

One of the inmates who allegedly received the shipments, Jeffrey Todd Tomblin, was also charged.

Officials say Trowbridge successfully smuggled marijuana into the prison on at least three occasions.
