Cocaine pusher found dealing in local prison unit

By James Clark email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Normally when police catch a cocaine dealer, the solution is to arrest him and throw him in prison.  But that didn't stop Alberto Rodriguez-Campos.  He admits he sold cocaine to a fellow inmate of the Giles Dalby Correctional Facility in Post. 

According to court records, Rodriguez-Campos agreed to provide a small quantity of cocaine in exchange for $350 being sent to his wife in Lubbock.  Court records say he was able to get the cocaine from a prison staff member. 

By the way, Rodriguez-Campos was serving 57 months for being in the U.S. illegally.  On the most recent charge of Possessing Contraband in Prison, he pleaded guilty and will be sentenced at a later date to no more than 10 years in prison.
