Mississippi Department of Corrections investigators have arrested an MDOC corrections officer at Central Mississippi Correctional Facility in Pearl, Mississippi, on charges related to alleged introduction and possession of contraband in the facility.

MDOC investigators arrested Brenda Denise Hicks of Morton on Wednesday on charges of introducing contraband in the form of methamphetamine, possession of illegal contraband in the form of methamphetamine, trafficking contraband in the form of methamphetamine, and extortion.

Investigations are ongoing by the Mississippi Department of Corrections to make prisons safer by cracking down on the flow of contraband such as drugs, cellphones and other illegal items to inmates.

Charges associated with an arrest are merely allegations and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
