Former correctional officer, murder suspect charged for smuggling contraband

October 17, 2017


The Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Department have charged two people—a former correctional officer and a murder suspect – with conspiracy to introduce contraband into the Lauderdale County Detention Facility.  Chief Deputy Ward Calhoun says Vashanda Clark and Deonta Stephens are now facing charges after deputies received a tip about their activity and intercepted a package delivery.  Clark’s bond has been set at $10,000.  Since Stephens is in custody for a 2015 murder charge, he has no bond.  The Sheriff’s department is still investigating the case to see if others were involved in the contraband smuggling.
