A Chicago resident was arrested Saturday on a charge of trafficking with an offender at the Indiana State Prison in Michigan City, the Department of Correction (DOC) is reporting.

According to DOC, Cierra Childs, 25, was stopped for questioning by correctional officers before her visit with inmate Brandon Rogers. DOC said that calls which she’d had with Rogers “led Investigators to believe she may have something on her.”

Childs was found to be in possession of two packages containing a green plant-like material, DOC said.

Childs was booked into the LaPorte County jail on a charge of trafficking with an offender, a Level 5 felony punishable by a term of up to eight years.

Rogers, 29, of Hammond, is serving a three-year sentence through Lake County on convictions for resisting arrest and burglary. His earliest projected release date was April 8, 2018.

“Due to the hard work and diligence of our Investigative and Intelligence staff this person was taken off of the streets and will no longer be able to continue to traffic with offenders at the Indiana State Prison,” Superintendent Ron Neal said.
