Heidi Jungwirth and Sophia Ball, both of East Moline, are charged with furnishing controlled substances and contraband to inmates. The arrests follow an investigation. Sheriff Dennis Conard says his investigation started after allegations of improper and criminal conduct were brought against the officers.
