EVANS, GA (WFXG) -

A Columbia County Sheriff's deputy has been arrested on suspicions of smuggling contraband into the Columbia County Detention Center.

Investigators tell FOX54 that an inmate alerted officers to those suspicions on February 5.

After an investigation by the Internal Affairs Office, deputy Kester Henry Dozier was terminated from employment on Monday.

Dozier was then arrested today on charges of Delivery of Prohibited Articles to Inmates (OCGA 42-4-13) as well as Violation of Oath of Office (OCGA 16-10-1).
