ADRIAN, Mich. (AP) - Another food service worker has been fired on suspicion of smuggling drugs into a Michigan prison.

The Detroit Free Press reports (http://on.freep.com/ZPQKm8 ) the kitchen worker at Gus Harrison Correctional Facility near Adrian is the third such Aramark Correctional Services employee to be fired in such a case since the Philadelphia-based company took over food service at Michigan prisons.

Michigan Department of Corrections spokesman Russ Marlan says the worker was fired and banned from prison property Oct. 3 on suspicion of smuggling marijuana into the prison. No charges have been filed and state police are investigating.

Aramark spokeswoman Karen Cutler says the Corrections Department conducts background checks on its job applicants.

The other Michigan cases were at the G. Robert Cotton Correctional Facility near Jackson and the St. Louis Correctional Facility.
