Central Florida sheriff's officials say two detention deputies were arrested after an investigation found they delivered marijuana to an inmate in jail.

The Polk County Sheriff's Office says authorities believe detention deputy Michael T. Redmond, 23, delivered the drugs to inmate Freddie Street and detention deputy Jarrett R. Brice, 34, helped with the deliveries.

Investigators believe Street's girlfriend, Latifah Bilal, 25, gave the drugs to Redmond. She is also facing charges.

Both deputies resigned. Jail officials did not answer calls to determine whether the three had lawyers.
