Alabama Prison Captain, Ex-Officer Arrested on Bribery, Ethics Charges

An Alabama prison captain and a former officer were arrested Monday on bribery and ethics charges, the state prison system confirmed.

The Alabama Department of Corrections said Capt. Deaundra Johnson and Centauria Olds, a former prison lieutenant, were arrested Monday on charges of bribery of a public servant and using their official positions for personal gain. Investigators also executed a search warrant as part of an ongoing investigation, the prison system said in a statement.

The prison system did not provide details of the accusations and court records were not immediately available. Olds was arrested last year on an accusation of accepting money from an inmate in exchange for bringing contraband into the prison, according to court records. The case was sent to grand jury, but it’s unclear if that led to Monday’s arrest.
