Details of the cases:
According to criminal complaints filed by Clarion County Detective William Peck, the following incidents occurred at the Clarion County Jail:
- Around 3:40 p.m. on Saturday, June 2, Clarion County Corrections Officers Allio and Fink conducted a cell search of a cell on E Block which housed county jail inmate Christopher Wyant. While searching the cell, the correction officers discovered the light fixture had been tampered with and had a burnt wire hanging out the bottom. Wyant was then searched by the officers and a marijuana pipe contained in a black rubber glove was located in his underwear. The residue inside the pipe was tested using a NIK field testing system. The residue field tested positive for Marijuana.
- Around 6:20 p.m. on Monday, June 4, Wyant pushed the call button in his cell. A corrections officer responded to the cell and discovered the toilet paper holder was pushed into the assembly. At a misconduct hearing within the jail on Thursday, June 7, Wyant admitted that he damaged the toilet paper holder. The damage estimate for the repair of the holder is $50.00.
- Around 9:20 p.m. on Monday, June 25, a corrections officer responded to a call bell and discovered that the light cover and bulb in Wyant’s cell were broken. Wyant stated that “he did it.” He said the other inmate in the cell had nothing to do with it and that “maybe they will get me out of here if things keep breaking.” The damage was estimated at $278.60.
