Texas Jail Official Arrested For Stealing From Inmates

Mayra Gallegos-Balderas, 23, has been taken into custody on charges that she stole money from jail inmates while working at a county jail in Texas.

Gallegos-Balderas worked for GEO Group, a private company that operates the jail in Liberty County, Texas.

She was taken into custody on charges that she stole around $1,478 from inmates.

Because she was a public servant “and the money came into her possession while acting in the capacity of her duties,” she will be charged with a felony, according to CBS Dallas.
