POST, TX (KCBD) -

A federal prison guard out of Post is facing criminal charges, accused of taking a bribe and smuggling drugs to an inmate inside of the prison.

According to federal court documents, Johnny Haynes was arrested Tuesday on charges of taking a bribe to smuggle drugs to a prison inmate at the Giles Dalby Correctional Center in Post.

Documents say the alleged crimes took place from November 2011 until Haynes' subsequent arrest. Investigators say Haynes met with an undercover federal agent and accepted an ounce of marijuana and $750 in cash.

Documents also say Haynes admitted to having a sexual relationship with one of his male inmates.

Wednesday, Haynes appeared in court for an initial appearance and was released on his own recognizance. A hearing in the case has been set for March 5.

Officials at the Giles W. Dalby Correctional Facility released a statement on Friday: 

"We have zero tolerance for this type of activity," said Warden Kerry Dixon. "We initiated the investigation several weeks ago. We had reason to believe this officer was involved in criminal activity with an inmate."
