Security chief at detention center removed

ANNAPOLIS — A spokesman for Maryland’s public safety and corrections agency says the security chief at the Baltimore City Detention Center has been removed from the job in the aftermath of a federal indictment charging 25 people in a contraband case.

Rick Binetti, a spokesman for the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services, said in a statement Tuesday that the security chief is the third-ranking official at the detention center.

The official was not named, but the Maryland Manual lists Shavella Miles as the security chief at the detention center. She did not immediately return a phone message left for her.

Last month, 25 people, including 13 correctional officers were indicted in a case that alleges a gang ran a contraband and drug-smuggling scheme from inside the detention center.
