Kevin J. Veneama, 50, had 28 years in at the time of his downfall. He transferred from DVI about 11 months ago. When he was grabbed he had three backs of tobacco hidden in his lunch box and six cellphones stashed in pockets in his vest. He also had some drugs on him. When they searched his car they found small-arms ammunition, several small knives and a machete.
Venema blames stress and financial hardship due to two divorces and a child with leukemia.
He has resigned.
