CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A Charleston man has been arrested after authorities say he took prohibited items into a correctional center.

News outlets report 26-year-old Kristopher Evans was arrested Tuesday and charged with transporting prohibited items into the Charleston Correctional Facility through a fence in March.

The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that deputies searching Evans‘ residence found a drug used to treat nerve pain and powder substance, which they believe he gave to inmates.

It’s unclear if Evans has an attorney.
