A corrections officer at the D.C. Jail has been arrested for having marijuana in his locker at the facility after a police dog detected the presence of the drug, according to a court document.
Jonathan Womble was charged Wednesday with introducing contraband into prison. If guilty, he could face up to five years behind bars.
Womble, 26, has worked as a corrections officer at the D.C. Jail since May 2008 and has a locker at the facility. The jail, located at 1901 D St. SE, houses male inmates, most of whom are awaiting judgment or have been sentenced for misdemeanor offenses.
