SALUDA COUNTY, SC (WIS) - Two former Saluda County correctional officers are out of a job and facing charges after they were caught taking food, drinks, drugs and other contraband into the jail for inmates, according to authorities.

Saluda County Sheriff Jason Booth said his agency and the 11th Circuit Solicitor's Office have charged Pamela Warren and Rebecca Williams with misconduct in office.

Booth said Warren and Williams were providing items such as Big Macs, valium pills, toiletries and other items to inmates inside the Saluda County Detention Center.

Booth also says both women were having intimate relationships with those inmates.

After an investigation, the officers turned themselves in and were charged. They are no longer employed with the detention center.

Both have been released from jail on personal recognizance bonds.
