MACON, Miss. (WTVA) - Two Mississippi Department of Corrections employees were arrested over the weekend at the Noxubee County Community Work Center.

Keyshun Smith was found in possession of marijuana, Sheriff Terry Grassaree confirmed. Smith has been charged with possession of a controlled substance on MDOC grounds.

Meanwhile, Shanteria Tate was charged with possession of an alcoholic beverage on MDOC grounds. 

The two had their bonds set at $10,000.
