(KMOV.com) – An employee at the St. Louis City Justice Center has admitted to smuggling in drugs to inmates between June 2013 and July 2014.

Anthony Pitt, the kitchen manager, admitted to delivering tobacco products to inmates by placing them in a napkin and leaving it on a table where the inmate would retrieve it. Upon further investigation, police discovered he also delivered cigarettes, heroin, cocaine, and marijuana.

The investigation began after employees with the St. Louis City Division of Corrections found the contraband in the jail. It was later discovered six inmates provided Pitt's cell phone number to their family members who would then pay Pitt $50.00 a month for the deliveries.

Pitt's phone was searched and the numbers of the inmate's family members were found. He has been charged with nine counts of conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance.
