A guard at the CEC/Civigenics in Texarkana has been indicted by a grand jury on charges of attempting to take drugs into a prison owned by the facility, according to a story in the Texarkana Gazette ("Former jail guard indicted: Former Bowie County employee faces drug charges," May 15),

A former Bowie County jail guard was indicted last week by a grand jury.  Amber Hinds, 20, “turned around and went back to her car when she realized her supervisor intended to search employees that day as they came to work,” according to a probable cause affidavit.

Officials with the jail, which is run by Civigenics, contacted the Bowie County Sheriff’s Office about Hinds’ conduct, the affidavit said.
