Jail employee arrested on suspicion of dealing cocaine behind bars

On Monday, February 13, 2012, at approximately 7:30 P.M., members of the
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Internal Criminal
Investigations Bureau arrested a 24-year old employee named Remington
Orr, as he was preparing to enter Men’s Central Jail to distribute
cocaine.

Orr, employed as a Custody Assistant assigned to the Men’s Central
Jail, has been a Department member for four years. Monday’s arrest
culminated a four week Sheriff’s Department investigation into
allegations that Orr was bringing contraband to jail inmates in exchange
for monetary considerations. He was subsequently arrested for
Possession of a Controlled Substance with the Intent to Sell,
Transportation of a Controlled Substance with the Intent to Sell, and
Bribery.

Orr was booked into the Inmate Reception Center, and is being held in lieu of $1,000,000.00 bail.
