Oklahoma County Jail

OKLAHOMA CITY – 

An Oklahoma County Detention Center employee was terminated after she was arrested and booked on contraband complaints.

Jail officials identified the employee as Reagan Widener. Widener was a detention officer at the facility.

Special investigators inside the jail learned Widener had an unauthorized cell phone. She later admitted to investigators that she brought in tobacco and delivered packages of unknown drugs to an inmate inside the jail. She received $2,000 for delivering the drugs.

When investigators searched Widener’s vehicle, they found 4.5 grams of marijuana, a handgun and a digital scale.

Widener was booked into the OCDC Tuesday on four complaints: distribution of a controlled substance, possession with intent to distribute, use of a firearm while committing a felony and carrying a weapon, drugs or alcohol into jail.

Jail officials said their investigation is still ongoing and could results in more complaints filed against Widener.
