Kitchen Employee at Detention Center Charged with Providing Drugs and Cigarettes to Inmates

June 12, 2019

In May of 2019, detectives from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division began an investigation into allegations a contract Aramark employee, who worked in the kitchen at the St. Mary’s County Detention and Rehabilitation Center, was bringing contraband into the facility.

The investigation determined Tammy Lee Hill, 44 of Mechanicsville, was bringing numerous prescription pills into the facility as well as Suboxone and cigarettes and providing them to inmates.

On June 11, 2019, Hill was served a criminal summons and charged with six counts of Possess Contraband-Place of Confinement.

    Should have been charged with attempted murder like other drug dealers are. WTH is wrong with you people?

      Hey – It’s the same ole story bro….

      In a capitalistic society, “supply and demand” drives everything.

      Just a little supplemental income for the kitchen staff.

      Besides – drug violations carry far more harsher sentencing than murder now days.

        So the inmates were “purchasing” these drugs from the kitchen staff??? I find that hard to believe… Cant imagine there is a lot of “inmate currency” that holds any value outside the facility

        Yes, but most of us are smart enough to work hard at legal jobs and learn a legal skill to make a good living. Taking shortcuts to get by in life might work short term but it never works for the long haul. Now she has taken 10 steps back and will have trouble paying legal costs and finding another job just to get back to where she was in life. I doubt it was all worth it.

    Her mother got her the job, plus her father is a corporal at the detention center. Said this would happen as soon as she got the job (early 2019).

    I call BS. If she wanted to make more money she could work more jobs or find a job that pays better. When I was in my 20’s I had 3 jobs and worked 12 to 16 hours a day. That is the definition of you got to do what you got to do. Her way is the definition of F everyone else and F the law I am going to selfishly do my thing no matter who I step on to get it done.
