The Cook County Sheriff's office has announced that a 15-year jail guard has been charged with trying to smuggle drugs into Cook County Jail. The jail guard, Timothy Fuller, is charged with Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Cocaine, Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Deliver and Possession of Cocaine with Intent to Deliver. He was arrested after he was caught in an undercover sting operation. Fuller had been working in the medium security Division 11 building. He has been suspended with pay and will appear before the Merit Board for a termination hearing. The investigation began when jail officials noticed Fuller engaging in suspicious activity with jail inmates. It is alleged that Fuller agreed to deliver drugs to an inmate in exchange for $400. He was arrested after he accepted a quantity of cocaine and marijuana from an undercover female officer in an exchange captured on video in an undercover police vehicle. This meeting happened after Fuller's shift at the jail ended.
