  • The corrections officer allegedly told an undercover detective she had “no issues” smuggling narcotics into prison.

  • The suspect faces a bond of more than $60,000.

A state corrections officer allegedly agreed to smuggle narcotics into a prison facility for an undercover detective who posed as a Miami drug dealer, according to an arrest report.

Cleotilde Del Pilar-Mejia, 28, was arrested on July 17 shortly after she allegedly told the undercover detective she would smuggle the cocaine for $500, the arrest report states.

Pilar-Mejia met the detective at a parking lot at Dolphin Mall. The detective agreed to pay her if she smuggled 86 grams of cocaine, the report adds.

Pilar-Mejia allegedly told the detective she had “no issues entering the narcotics into a Florida state prison facility” while discussing future cocaine transactions, the report states.

Miami-Dade Bond Court Judge Renatha Francis set Pilar-Mejia’s bond at $62,500. She faces charges of cocaine trafficking and unlawful compensation, among others.

“The allegations are pretty serious. You were trying to smuggle drugs into a prison facility,” Francis said.
