KROTZ SPRINGS, La. (AP) - Authorities say a Krotz Springs Police Department dispatcher is accused of allowing two inmates into the police evidence room, where they took illegal drugs.
St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby J. Guidroz says dispatcher Amanda Nail has been booked with malfeasance and simple burglary.
Guidroz says the two inmates, Jessica Courville and Michael Stermer, were booked with simple burglary.
The sheriff tells The Advertiser Nall allegedly shut off the lights in the vicinity of the evidence room in an attempt to hide activity from security cameras. Stermer allegedly pried open the door to the evidence room and, after the door was opened, Courville and Stermer entered the room and removed an undetermined amount of illegal narcotics.
Guidroz says the investigation remains open and an additional arrest is expected.
