    A Department of Corrections (DOC) employee is facing charges after she gave an inmate at a Somers prison a cell phone, state police said.

    The security division of the DOC told state police that they found a cell phone on inmate Anthony Hall, 39, at Osborn Correctional Institution in Somers and that they believe Emily McIntosh, 32, of Rockville, delivered it to him, state police said.

    State police obtained arrest warrants for both McIntosh and Hall on May 28 after a lengthy investigation. McIntosh turned herself into state police on Friday at 10:10 a.m.

    State police charged McIntosh with unauthorized conveyance of a wireless communication device into a prison and conspiracy to commit the crime. She was released on a $1,000 non-surety bond and is scheduled to appear in Rockville Superior Court on June 16.

    The case remains active and Hall will be brought to court so that state police can serve a warrant for his arrest in connection to the incident.
