American Samoa Corrections Officers Allow Inmates to Go on Beer Runs

American Samoa has one jail. The rules are evidently pretty lax there. Two corrections officers there are suspected of allowing inmates to leave to go on beer and food runs.

Officers Fiti Aina and Rocky Tua were charged with aiding the escape of a prisoner, permitting escape and public servant acceding to corruption.

A search in July at Territorial Correctional Facility turned up beer in an inmate’s cell. During the investigation police learned that officers were sending the incarcerated unsupervised to a nearby store.

One of the inmates let out is serving 40 months for assaulting another man with a machete!

Court documents say an inmate told investigators he bought beer for another inmate and chips and cookies for Tua.

Aina and Tua were each held on $10,000 bail.
