Another incarcerated person died inside an Alabama Department of Correction Facility (ADOC) and two ADOC staff were arrested for promoting contraband.

Glen Ball Jr. died on Sunday at Bullock Correctional Facility. Ball’s family found out from a social media post later in the evening. They initially called ADOC but did not get a response until later that night to confirm his death.

Stefan Harris was a correctional officer at Staton Correctional Facility and was arrested on Nov. 25. According to ADOC Harris arrived at Staton for work but would not go through the facility’s scanner. After Harris was detained a Law Enforcement Services Division officer arrived and caught Harris attempting to get rid of an item.

Harris was then searched and found to have contraband on his person as well as in his car. Harris was eventually arrested and sent to Elmore County Jail after it was confirmed he had contraband. According to ABC33/40 Harris was charged with promoting prison contraband in the first degree, possession of a controlled substance, and use of position for personal gain.

Sarah Woodward was the other person found to have contraband and she was an administrative support assistant at Elmore Correctional Facility. She was arrested on Nov. 22 after a K-9 search of the facility led to the dogs noticing her vehicle. Woodward allowed her vehicle to be searched and a package was discovered inside.

After inspecting the package it was confirmed to be contraband and Woodward was arrested and sent to Elmore County Jail. Woodward was charged with promoting prison contraband 1st and 2nd, possession of marijuana 2nd, use of official position for personal gain, and traffickinb methamphetamine.’
