A detention deputy with the Broward County Sheriff’s Office has been arrested for allegedly smuggling drugs into the jail for an inmate.
21-year-old Victoria Campos-Marquetti was arrested on Tuesday following a joint investigation between BSO’s Public Corruption Unit, Strategic Investigations Division Major Narcotics Unit, and DOD’s Security Threat Group.
Officials say they found that an inmate at the Main jail “created an alleged ongoing enterprise, in which Campos-Marquetti would willingly introduce contraband (narcotics) into the jail facility at the request of the inmate” for money.
On Monday, the confidential informant told investigators that Campos-Marquetti agreed to meet with his “brother” to pick up 50 oxycodone pills.
Once a deposit of $250 was sent to Campos-Marquetti’s CashApp, she contacted an undercover detective, who was posing as the “brother.”
They set up a time and place to meet for the exchange and the rest of the payment.
Once the exchange occurred, Campos-Marquetti was taken into custody.
She now faces one count each of possession of oxycodone with intent to sell, unlawful compensation, and possession of a firearm while in the commission of a felony. After her arrest, she was suspended without pay.
