Officer's deal to smuggle drugs into Cook County Jail caught on tape

A correctional officer at the Cook County Jail who was caught on camera accepting marijuana and cocaine to deliver to an inmate has been charged with four felonies after undercover officers arrested him Monday.

Timothy Fuller, 42, of Oak Park, is charged with possession of marijuana, possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and possession of cocaine with intent to deliver after being caught by a sting investigation, according to a release from the Cook County Sheriff’s office.

Fuller, a 15-year correctional officer who worked in the jail’s medium-security Division 11 building, has been suspended with pay pending a termination hearing before the sheriff’s Merit Board, the release said.
The investigation began when members of the sheriff’s Office of Professional Review learned that Fuller was involved in suspicious activity at the jail involving inmates, according to the release.

Fuller allegedly had agreed to meet a woman who would give him drugs to smuggle into the jail in return for $400, the release said. He allegedly told the inmate to have a woman deliver the drugs so he could flirt with her and ask her out.

Fuller was arrested Monday after accepting 15.9 grams of cocaine and 135 grams of marijuana from an undercover female officer in an exchange captured on video in an undercover police vehicle, the release said. The rendezvous happened following his shift, which ended at 3 p.m. Monday.

Fuller is scheduled to appear in bond court Thursday morning, the release said.
