BISHOPVILLE, SC — A prison chaplain for the Lee Correctional Institution stands accused of trying to bring contraband inside the facility in a very unique fashion.
Joseph Michael Boutte, 51, tried to bring a Yamaha keyboard into the facility on Thursday, according to WLTX. When it was x-rayed, four plastic sealed bags of tobacco and cell phones were found inside the keyboard.
Officers then went and searched Boutte’s vehicle, and found a tube wrapped in black take that had just under half a pound of marijuana.
He is scheduled for a hearing this morning.
