A Beckley man who worked at Mount Olive Correctional Center in Fayette County is facing more than a dozen charges of bribery and aiding inmates.  On Tuesday, Aug. 15, 2017, 43-year-old Toby Lyle Stover was arraigned on seven felony counts of Aiding an Adult in Confinement and seven felony counts of Bribery.  The West Virginia Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety confirmed Stover was a Lieutenant at Mount Olive Correctional Center until he resigned the position during the week of Aug. 7 to 11.

The investigation began in February 2017.  According to the criminal complaint, Stover was providing inmates at Mount Olive with cellphones, tobacco, drugs and a knife.  There were several inmates who told investigators about what was happening.  The information was backed up by surveillance video and cellphone logs.  

Stover was apparently receiving $300 per delivery.  Investigators discovered the money was being transferred using a fake company set up by Stover.  He is being held in the Southern Regional Jail on a $20,000 bond.
