Campbell Jail Deputy Arrested on Contraband Charge

A Campbell County Detention Center deputy is now on the other side of the bars, charged with second degree promotion of contraband.

Matthew John Glenn, 24, was arrested Sunday.

Campbell County Jailer Jim Daley told The River City News on Friday that Glenn is suspected of providing tobacco and a mobile phone to an inmate.

"It's an ongoing investigation," Daley said.

According to the jail's online system, Glenn is still behind bars Friday. He is being held on $2,500 bond.

Daley said that the jail has its own detective tasked with investigating matters like this, and that while inmates try to bring contraband in "every day, every minute of every day", it is rare for deputies to break the rules or the law.

But the jailer will punish employees caught on the wrong side of the law.

Glenn has been fired.

"As long as I'm jailer, he is terminated immediately and I do my very best to him in jail," Daley said.
