Columbus Juvenile Corrections Officer Arrested

Posted: Updated:

(COLUMBUS, Ga.)  A juvenile corrections officer with the Muscogee Youth Development Campus has been arrested on multiple charges.  It's the result of a crackdown on internal corruption by the Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice.

Juvenile Corrections Officer Anthony Harvey faces a felony charge of bringing a controlled substance past the guard line at the YDC.  Harvey also faces a misdemeanor charge of possession of marijuana and violating his oath of office.

A second arrest is pending, that of Juvenile Corrections Officer Keith Spruills.  He faces two felony charges of bringing contriband inside a juvenile facility. 

Both Spruills and Harvey have been suspended immediately without pay.

The ongoing investigation has also resulted in two other corrections officers resigning.  A third was terminated.
