Lexington County Detention Center contractor, inmate charged in contraband case
Lexington, S.C. – An Orangeburg man who works for the Lexington County Detention Center’s food service provider is accused of providing forbidden items to an inmate.
Joshua Lawrence Clyburn, 28, is charged with furnishing contraband inside a county correctional facility, according to an arrest warrant. Michael Channing Moses, 45, is charged with possessing contraband while being housed as an inmate.
“During our work on this case, detectives saw Clyburn handing items to Moses on security camera video,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Moses was found to be in possession of some tobacco products and other personal items not readily available to inmates.”
Moses, a Dalzell resident, has been in the detention center since December, according to Koon.
Clyburn turned himself in Monday morning. He’s been released on a personal recognizance bond.
