WESTVILLE | A Valparaiso woman was arrested Tuesday at the Westville Correctional Facility and charged with trafficking.

Christine Evans, 28, was an officer trainee, according to the Indiana Department of Correction.

Evans was believed to be in possession of a green leafy substance in a plastic bag, according to a DOC press release. She was taken to the Internal Affairs office, where she was taken into custody by Correctional Police officers. She was taken to the LaPorte County Jail.

The incident is still under investigation by the facility’s Internal Affairs Department to determine if anyone else is involved, according to the DOC.

“We will not tolerate trafficking,” Superintendent Mark Levenhagen said in the press release. “Staff who bring in contraband endanger the safety of everyone, including those who work side by side with them.”
