Vance Laughlin seems to have a comprehension problem. From what we hear he allegedly does not seem to understand that a "Tobacco Free Facility" includes chewing tobacco. At Stewart Detention Center both Vance and his Assistant Warden Charlie Peterson used dip daily. They both seemed to always be carrying a can or cup to spit in, which presents quite the professional image. Not to mention that this violated CCA corporate policies on tobacco free facilities. Behavior like this is just another example of how Vance thinks he is above having to follow rules and can do as he likes. It also shows the problems that CCA has day in and day out in managing facilities when individuals like Vance, who maybe don't deserve the trust and responsibility that CCA places in them, continue to do as they want with little or no repercussions from a corporation that fails to manage them effectively or hold them accountable.
From what we understand Vance continues to act as he wants and just recently got into an argument with a CCA security staff member who found him in possession of contraband in his current facilities lobby. Some people just never get it. Hey Vance, when you dodge the rules and requirements that everyone else has to follow it speaks volumes about your own character and eventually it will catch up with you.
In a news story found here Vance Laughlin stated:
“Through our own investigation with our criminal investigation team on site and the assistance of her actual shift supervisor, she was caught red handed with contraband,” Laughlin said. “She was suspended and shortly after that she resigned.”
Further investigation of the case is being handled by the Adams County Sheriff’s Office, Laughlin said
Hmmmmm.... As we reported above (allegedly) Vance Laughlin was also caught "red handed" but it seems like he handled his own situation much differently. If Vance Laughlin did allegedly bring contraband into his own facility then it probably should of also been forwarded to the Adams County Sheriff's office for possible charges of introduction of Contraband into a correctional facility.
We have requested that the Federal Bureau of Prisons investigate the alleged smuggling of contraband into the Adams County Correctional Facility by Warden Vance Laughlin.
