Tavaries Moore won’t be working as a prison guard again anytime soon. However, he has a promising future as a trustee.

‚ÄčA North Carolina prison employee has been arrested and accused of smuggling marijuana inside the facility.

Tavaries Cordero Moore, 22, of Greensboro, N.C., is getting the book thrown at him. Moore is charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, felony possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance in a prison facility and aiding and abetting providing drugs to an inmate, reports My Fox 8.
Moore is an employee of the Caswell Correctional Facility in Caswell County. Deputies said they began their investigation on March 1, reports WXII 12.

About 54 grams of marijuana was found in a hidden soft drink compartment that Moore had rigged, deputies said. The drink was in his lunch we he had brought into the correctional facility, according to deputies.
Moore was jailed in the Caswell County Detention Center on a $10,000 secured bond. He is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday in Yanceyville, N.C.
A call to the North Carolina Department of Corrections seeking information on Moore’s employment status wasn’t immediately returned. I don’t think he’ll be working as a prison guard again anytime soon.
