GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - A Marshall County corrections officer has been arrested for promoting prison contraband and other drug-related charges on Thursday.

Corrections officer David Lowe was arrested and charged with first-degree promoting prison contraband, second-degree promoting prison contraband, third-degree promoting prison contraband, unlawful possession of a controlled substance (meth) and unlawful distribution of a controlled substance (meth).

Lowe is being held in the Marshall County Jail on a $250,000 bond.

Marshall County Sheriff, Phil Sims, released the following statement:

“I was notified of a potential problem we had with contraband and drugs getting in the jail. I immediately ordered an investigation to determine how and what items were getting in the jail. Everyone involved did a great job. The investigation resulted in the arrest of one of our own. I hold my employees to a high standard and when that standard is not met or abused, I will hold them accountable. As a correction officer or deputy, we are public servants and should be held to a higher standard of accountability.’
