Pima County officer accused in smuggling case

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - The Pima County Sheriff's Department says one of its corrections officers has resigned after being arrested on suspicion of smuggling contraband into the county jail.

The department says 32-year-old Arturo Martinez was arrested Wednesday and that he is accused of smuggling a cellphone, a solar phone charger and other contraband into the jail.

According to the department, two inmates also have been arrested in the case and accused of promoting prison contraband.

The department says the arrests are a result of what the department says is a long-term investigation that is continuing and may produce more arrests.

A sheriff's spokesman says he doesn't know whether Martinez has an attorney.
