A Georgia corrections officer was allegedly caught smuggling almost $30,000 into a Georgia prison to an inmate she was romantically involved with.

According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the cash was funneled inside Smith State Prison in Glenville so a prison crime ring could bribe prison guards.


Channel 2 Investigative Reporter Mark Winne talked with GBI Director Vic Reynolds about the new indictment.


“I’m not talking about $100 or $500. I’m taking about $29,000 that they brought into the state prison system,” Reynolds said.

Reynolds said that thankfully, the money was intercepted.

Reynolds said Ireon Moore has been indicted for furnishing prohibited items to inmates and violation of oath. Reynolds said the oath was for her job as a corrections officer, a job she was fired from in April of 2021.“I’m not talking about $100 or $500.
