A Liberty County jailer has found herself on the other side of the cell bars.

Latondra Netrell Brown, a correctional officer for the Community Education Center at the Liberty County Jail, has been arrested amid accusations she smuggled tobacco, marijuana and "dangerous drugs" to inmates at the county jail, according to the Liberty County Sheriff's Office. She's been employed as a correctional officer for about a year.

Brown, 22, now faces three felony charges and is being held at the county jail pending a bond hearing.

Detectives are still trying to determine whether any other jail employees were involved in the operation but say Brown is cooperating with the investigation.
