PHOENIX -- A kitchen supervisor at an Arizona federal prison was apprehended by the FBI this week after it was discovered that he was allegedly trading sexual favors for cigarettes with two male inmates.

Carl David Evans was arrested Tuesday and charged with two counts of sexual abuse of a ward and providing contraband to an inmate.

According to an FBI affidavit, staff at the Federal Correctional Institution in Phoenix learned back in June that Evans was in a sexual relationship with an inmate identified as “E.D.”

The FBI began monitoring Evans, and hid a video camera in the kitchen’s storage area to record his shifts from August 19 to August 23.

While reviewing the footage, investigators reportedly saw Evans, “E.D.,” and a second inmate identified as “J.I.” participating in sex acts together in the storage area.

The FBI went on to speak with “E.D.,” who said his relationship with Evans began in April. He claimed that Evans gave him “access to food that he took or sold.” Evans also allegedly gave “E.D.” a pack of cigarettes every two weeks, which “E.D.” would turn around and sell to other inmates.

According to the FBI affidavit, “J.I.” revealed to investigators that he got involved in a sexual relationship with Evans and “E.D.” a month ago after hearing about how “E.D.,” “had access to food and benefited from his relationship with Evans.”

Evans was arrested at the Federal Correctional Institution and taken to the FBI office in Phoenix.
