TULSA - For the second time in two weeks, the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office arrested one of their own.

Detention Officer Kevin Mayo, 20, was arrested Friday for possession of contraband in a jail, conspiracy to commit a felony, possession of marijuana, possession of methamphetamine, possession of schedule II drug, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

As Mayo prepared to go to his work station, he was asked for his backpack. The backpack was searched and among things that were found were a Tupperwear item that appeared to have fried chicken and a wrapped burrito in it. An officer, upon further investigation, discovered marijuana inside the burrito item. According to the arrest report, what appeared to be hydrocodone pills crushed were also found.

Meth also was discovered after unwrapping of the burrito, plus cell phones and battery.

The investigation also revealed two cell phone chargers and two packs of rolling papers hidden in a gum package.

Mayo has been employed with TCSO for a little more than three months. He has been placed on administrative leave without pay. 

On June 2, TCSO arrested detention officer Rickardo Williams for sexual battery, the charges stemming from allegations that Williams touched inmates inappropriately.

Williams was placed on unpaid leave on May 22
