N.L. prison guard linked to major drug bust

A prison guard charged in connection with drug smuggling into a St. John’s prison has been ordered to stay away from people snared in a major drug bust in January, according to court documents.

Edward Taylor, 30, was arrested Tuesday after police said a search of his property turned up ecstasy and marijuana, and painkillers such as Percocet, OxyContin and morphine. Taylor is charged with five counts of drug trafficking, breach of trust and breach of probation.

One of the bail conditions the provincial court imposed orders Taylor to stay away from specific people, including Mary English, 19, of St. John’s and Zachary Hill, 25, of Victoria.
