TULSA (KTUL) - A detention officer with the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office has been taken into custody, accused of providing contraband to inmates.

Investigators started looking into Dominick Angora after he was made reference to by an inmate on a recorded phone call made from inside the David L. Moss housing unit.

Dominick Angora was approached when he arrived for his shift at the jail on Friday. He waived his Miranda rights and signed a search waiver for his car and cell phone. According to the arrest report, investigators found a small bag with 22.3 grams of tobacco and another bag with a white substance that tested positive for methamphetamine. There was also found two pills and two halves of a similar pill, all testing positive for codeine.

Angora said he was given the contraband by the spouse of an inmate who arranged the transaction and that Angora was supposed to be paid for bringing the items.

Angora has been terminated by TCSO and will be booked on three criminal complaints: possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute, possession of a scheduled drug and conspiracy to commit a felony.

Angora was hired by TCSO on November 2, 2016.
