ALBANY, GA – On August 9, 2021, Investigators with the Albany-Dougherty Drug Unit (ADDU) received information that an employee, an Administrative Specialist, with the Calhoun State Correctional Facility had been arrested for bringing 138 grams of Methamphetamine into the prison.
After confessing to law enforcement and Corrections Investigators to bringing the contraband into the facility, she advised that she had left her 10-year-old son in a hotel, which was later de- termined to be the Econo Lodge. The child had been left in the room with more contraband that she intended to bring into the facility.
After consulting with the Investigator for the Georgia Department of Corrections (GDC), a search warrant was obtained for the hotel room.

In addition to the child, Investigators recovered 210.4 grams of Crystal Methamphetamine. The defendant, identified as Atina Stevenson, black female, was charged with Trafficking in Metham- phetamine and Cruelty to a Child in the 2nd Degree.
