JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A northeast Florida jail guard is facing charges after authorities say he smuggled cigarettes and pornography into the facility for an inmate.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office reports that 42-year-old Brandon Scott Maynard was arrested Thursday.

Authorities say Maynard met with a woman away from the Duval County jail to obtain the items and then delivered them to the inmate in exchange for money.

The sheriff’s office reports that it began to investigate Maynard following an unsolicited tip from an inmate in August.

The Florida Times-Union (http://goo.gl/yALXLq ) reports that Maynard has been charged with introducing contraband into a detention facility and criminal conspiracy. Jail records didn’t list an attorney.
