Alabama corrections officer arrested for possession of meth, heroin

A corrections officer in St. Clair County was arrested Monday for possession of illegal narcotics, according to the Alabama Department of Corrections Investigations and Intelligence Division.

ADOC said 26-year-old Ivan Caldwell, of Birmingham, was charged with two counts of trafficking in controlled substances, promoting prison contraband and violation of license to carry a pistol.

Officers said they found two packages of 138 grams of methamphetamine and 16 grams of heroin in Caldwell’s car.

“Proactive measures to eradicate criminal activity on facilities’ grounds, as well as inside our correctional facilities are implemented on a regular basis,” said Arnaldo Mercado, director of ADOC’s Investigations and Intelligence Division. “We are deeply committed to eliminating contraband inside our facilities that pose a significant risk to the safety of our staff and inmates.”

Caldwell was transported and booked into the St. Clair County Jail. He had been employed as a correctional officer with ADOC since 2017, but resigned from his position after the arrest.

The public can contact the ADOC Investigations and Intelligence Division at 1-866-293-7799 with information that may lead to the arrest of anyone attempting to introduce illegal contraband into state prisons. Suspicious activity can also be reported on the ADOC Website.
