Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

A DEATH Row prison worker faces drug charges for al­legedly smug­gling more than 40 grams of metham­phetamine into the fa­cil­ity with his wooden leg.

Adam Siemer, who works at the Ok­la­homa State Pen­i­ten­tiary, was hit with charges of drug traf­fick­ing and bring­ing con­tra­band into a prison.

Prison au­thor­i­ties told po­lice two bags of sus­pected meth were found in Simer’s pros­thetic leg dur­ing a shake­down of the prison’s H- Unit, which houses Ok­la­homa’s Death Row.

Po­lice De­part­ment of­fi­cer Richard Be­ford wrote in a re­port that the to­tal of 42 grams of crys­tal- like sub­stance al­legedly ob­tained from Siemer’s pros­thetic limb tested pos­i­tive for metham­phetamine.

The re­port stated Siemer told po­lice “he had been set up, the chief or one of the other of­fi­cers had placed the bags in his leg be­cause he filed a griev­ance”.
