Investigators are following up on gang members’ claims that two deputies helped smuggle drugs into a prison cell in 2003.

The LA Sheriff’s Department opened the criminal investigation after this week’s allegations by Francisco Real. In his testimony, Real said the deputies hid drugs in a bedroll at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic.

One of the accused deputies was investigated six years ago after a similar allegation, according to The Associated Press.

The inmate, Rigoberto Perez, was a leader of the Drew Street gang. He is awaiting sentencing after being convicted of federal gang and drug charges.
