Former Darlington Co. Detention Center officer accused of using inmate’s EBT card


DARLINGTON, SC (WMBF) – A former Darlington County Detention Center officer was arrested Monday after she allegedly used an EBT card belonging to an incarcerated inmate.

Ashley Kameil Sims was arrested Monday and charged with misconduct in office, according to a news release from the Darlington County Sheriff’s Office.
