KSP received a call from the complex Sunday morning requesting a trooper concerning a worker believed to have slipped drugs into the state correctional facility, according to a KSP news release.

After Trooper Aaron Acree investigated, Danny L. Ford, 49 of Dawson Springs was charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance and first-degree promoting contraband.

Ford is being held in Caldwell County Jail.

KSP revealed Acree confiscated “a large quantity of Suboxone” during his investigation.
