SANTA FE – New Mexico deputies have arrested a Santa Fe County Jail corrections officer after he acknowledged bringing meth to work.
Cohen Mangin was arrested and charged with bringing contraband into places of imprisonment and possession of a controlled substance. He was released Friday.
Authorities said another officer found a plastic bag filled with meth near the main entrance Thursday.
Investigators said surveillance video showed Mangin dropping it as he got out of a car.
They said Mangin said in an interview that he used it to stay awake.
Online court records do not list a defense attorney for Mangin who could comment about the allegations.
A county spokesperson said an investigation is underway.
Mangin is scheduled to appear in court in December.
