BROOKLYN (PIX11) — Two New York City correction officers have admitted they were paid by Bloods gang members to smuggle drugs and phones into Rikers Island, authorities said Tuesday.

Officers Katrina Patterson, 31, and Krystle Burrell, 35, pleaded guilty to bribery during different proceedings at Brooklyn Federal Court. Patterson accepted more than $34,000 in bribes while Burrell allegedly made more than $10,000, prosecutors said.

“The defendants threw in their lot with Bloods gang members and betrayed their sworn duty to maintain the safety of incarcerated individuals and other correction officers at Rikers Island by smuggling cellphones and drugs into the jail,” U.S. Attorney Breon Peace said. “This office and our law enforcement partners are committed to rooting out corruption at Rikers Island.”

Authorities said Patterson was working for alleged Bloods gang member Michael Ross, who paid Patterson at least $34,090 in exchange for the contraband. Investigators found the drugs and phones in Ross’ cell in the Robert N. Davoren Center, officials said. Ross has also pleaded guilty to the bribery charge.

Burrell allegedly smuggled at least two cellphones into the Anna M. Kross Center for inmate Terrae Hinds in exchange for the money. The defendant also helped the purported Bloods gang member to operate his drug business inside the prison, prosecutors said. The charges against Hinds are pending.

Burrell and Patterson are facing lengthy prison sentences. The Department of Correction is in the process of terminating the officers, according to an agency source.

“I am standing by what I said when the charges were filed in their cases: they will be terminated, and their shield numbers will never be worn again,” DOC Commissioner Louis A. Molina said in a statement to PIX11 News. “We have zero-tolerance for this type of corruption.”
