Edgefield County Jailer is Arrested for Smuggling in Cell Phones for Cash


A jailer at the Edgefield County Detention Center has been arrested for smuggling in cell phones, according to Sheriff Jody Rowland.

Sidaria O. Adams, 29, of McCormick, S.C., was charged Monday with misconduct in office for allegedly conspiring with an inmate’s family to smuggle in the contraband into the Edgefield County jail. An extensive internal investigation was conducted by sheriff’s investigators. Officers discovered that Adams received money through a “cash app” for her part in the conspiracy, according to an ECSO press release.

“This case is an example of our transparency,” Sheriff Rowland said. “We received the complaint and followed the evidence where it led us. In this case, unfortunately, the perpetrator was one of our own. I pledged to provide a professional law enforcement service to the citizens of Edgefield County. When I find criminal misconduct, I will not hesitate to clean our own house.”

Adams had been employed by the detention center since October 2019.
