TECUMSEH, Neb. (AP)

An Omaha woman has been accused of illegally providing cellphones to inmates while working as a guard at the state prison in Tecumseh.

She’s charged with three felony counts of unlawful acts by a corrections employee. Court records say she was fired in March.        

Officials suspected that up to five phones were taken into the prison.

A phone listing couldn’t be found for the 22-year-old woman, Kiahna Arquilla. Her attorney didn’t immediately return a call Friday from The Associated Press, seeking comment on her behalf.
