SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — An employee with a northern Indiana probation department allegedly sold clean drug screenings to people on probation.

Thirty-four-year-old Raymontow Davis was charged Wednesday with bribery and official misconduct. He’s being held without bond, pending a Thursday initial hearing.

Prosecutors allege that Davis promised people on probation with St. Joseph County’s adult probation department that he would provide them with clean urine drug screenings in exchange for $150.

Court documents say Davis solicited money through calls and texts. An informant told investigators people on probation would bring Davis the money and a condom filled with clean urine.

Prosecutors will review all the cases Davis may have allegedly affected during his eight months as a probation department employee.

Online court records don’t list an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
