HENDRICKS COUNTY (Jan. 30, 2015) – A Plainfield corrections officer faces charges after investigators say he smuggled drugs to an inmate.

Investigators received a tip that Ryan Daniel, 22, Danville, would try to bring tobacco and heroin to an inmate at the Plainfield Correctional Facility Monday.

Investigators confronted Daniel about the information they’d received. During an interview, Daniel said he’d been distributing drugs to an inmate, James Massey, for about three months, according to court documents.

Daniel admitted he had contraband and produced a package he had taped between his legs. The “package contained approximately 4 ounces of a green leafy plant like substance that tested positive for a controlled substance, Synthetic Marijuana (Spice) and several small packages of a white powdery substance that tested positive for heroin,” court documents said.

Daniel let investigators search his vehicle, where they found two packages of spice and a clear package of tobacco. In all, Daniel had 13.6 ounces of spice, 0.1 ounce of heroin and 3.6 ounces of tobacco, court documents said.

He was arrested at the Plainfield Correctional Facility and taken to the Hendricks County Jail on charges of trafficking with an inmate and dealing in a synthetic drug.
