DOVER, Del.- Authorities arrested two correctional officers from Dover accused of smuggling drugs and cell phones to inmates at the J.T. Vaughn Correctional Center in Smyrna.

Delaware's District Attorney Charles M. Oberly, III, announced 46-year-old Thomas Nadill Boyce, Jr. and 46-year-old Paul Hursey were arrested and charged with extortion under color of official right. That carries a maximum penalty of 20 years imprisonment and a $250,000 fine.
 
The two made initial appearances today and were released on bail.
 
This joint investigation also resulted the filing of a criminal complaint against Correction Officer Lorraine Y.  Mosley, who was charged with smuggling a cell phone to an inmate at the Delores Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution in New Castle.
 
Commissioner Robert M. Coupe stated, “Unfortunately, contraband, to include drugs and cell phones, is successfully smuggled into DOC facilities and such criminal behavior puts the safety of our staff, inmates, and visitors to our facilities at risk.  Such actions violate the public’s trust, undermine the credibility of our department, and damage the integrity of our profession.  We are grateful to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the FBI, and the DOC for leading the investigation which resulted in the arrest of these employees.”
