An employee at the Charlotte Correctional Institution is facing felony charges after she allegedly smuggled in contraband through prison security.

27-year old Kaityln Robertson allegedly brought a pack of cigarettes, a SIM card, and two letters into a prison garbage can for an inmate she admitted to being romantically involved with.

Authorities found the items in inmate Carlos Flores’ waistband. He told investigators he got the contraband out of a trash can, but denied having any relationship with Robertson.
