JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A Hinds County Sheriff's deputy has been arrested after investigators discovered an undisclosed amount of narcotics in his patrol car.

"It is disappointing when we are put in position to arrest one of our own," said Major Pete Luke. "Law Enforcement officers are expected to hold themselves to a higher standard. These isolated events put doubt in the minds of the citizens that we serve."

Taylor has been booked in the Hinds County Detention Center in Raymond and is charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

He has also been fired from his position with the Hinds County Sheriff's Department.

We have also learned that Taylor is the brother of a detention guard, Brodrick Taylor, that was busted recently for bringing drugs and contraband into the jail.
