Additional Information

The charges stem from an investigation into allegations that Kilgore had been getting personally involved with an inmate while employed at the St. Clair County Jail. The investigation resulted in her immediate termination and arrest on Aug. 24, 2018.

On Sept. 16, 2018, a warrant was issued for Kilgore’s arrest from Aug. 24. Deputies were notified to be on the lookout for Kilgore’s vehicle. While on patrol, a deputy noticed a vehicle matching the description of Kilgore’s vehicle exceeding the speed limit on the highway. The deputy performed a traffic stop on said vehicle. The deputy made contact with the driver, Kilgore, and advised her there was a warrant out for her arrest. Kilgore was advised that her vehicle was going to be towed. While the deputies inventoried the vehicle, they found a light bulb that had been modified into a smoking device that had a burnt residue in it along with a large sum of cash.
