A grand jury in Geauga County is considering a case filed against a corrections officer at the state Supermax prison in Youngstown.

Bainbridge Township Police pulled over a Ford Mustang being driven by 20-year-old Skylar Major of Niles along Route 422 in June.

The arresting officer said he found that Major had a loaded .40 caliber handgun tucked into the car's door pocket, resulting in a charge of improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle.

Also, police charged Major with driving with a suspended license.

According to a police report, suspected steroids found during the traffic stop were sent to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation for lab testing. As of Friday, no drug charges had been filed against Major.

The case, initially filed in Chardon Municipal Court, has been bound over to the county grand jury for further consideration.

An official with the Ohio Department of Corrections tells 21 News that Major has been placed on leave pending the outcome of the case.
