A 25-year-old Forrest County Correctional Officer was charged this week with two counts of introducing contraband into a correctional facility.

Gregory Charles Leonard was charged with the two offenses after the Forrest County Sheriff’s Office conducted a search of the Correctional Facility. Several officers with multiple local agencies assisted in the search, including Forrest County K9 deputies Barron, Charlie, and Ace.

Leonard was subsequently fired, arrested, and transported to be booked into the Lamar County Sheriff’s Office, according to Scott Lees, Forrest County Public Information Officer.
