A sanitation worker who attempted to smuggle drugs and other contraband into Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF), has been granted bail.
Police say when Elijah James appeared virtually before a magistrate Friday, the court granted him bail of $900.
The Dennery resident is due to make another court appearance on April 12, 2021.
Police say James claimed responsibility after BCF officers discovered a quantity of marijuana in a garbage truck.
The officers also found a mobile telephone and cigarette paper.
James and two other men had arrived at the prison Thursday to collect garbage.
