|Three arrested in Alabama prison contraband investigations|
At approximately 3:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 8, correctional officers assigned to Ventress Correctional Facility in Clayton reported a male suspect in an unauthorized area outside the prison’s perimeter fence. When officers attempted to approach the suspect, he fled the area on foot and ran into a wooded area near the prison. During a search of the area, officers found a canvas bag containing four footballs sealed with tape and containing cell phones and battery chargers.
Prison officials dispatched the facility’s K9 unit, which was successful in apprehending 28-year-old William Tune of Nauvoo. Tune confessed to throwing the bag over the fence and was charged with promoting prison contraband.
