RALEIGH, N.C. — A federal grand jury has indicted two North Carolina correctional officers on bribery charges, authorities said Wednesday.

Rhonda Boyd, 27, was charged with conspiracy to commit bribery and acceptance of a bribe, while Raye Lynn Holley, 49, was charged with acceptance of a bribe.

Both women work at Rivers Correctional Institution, a federal prison in Winton in northeastern North Carolina.

Investigators allege that the women smuggled contraband, such as cellphones and cigarettes, into the prison since early last year.
