Prison worker ‘ smuggled meth in wooden leg’
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”.
