Five current and former employees at a Brooklyn juvenile detention center are facing federal bribery charges for allegedly smuggling marijuana, razor blades and other contraband into the facility, prosecutors said.

The youth development specialists, who were arrested Wednesday, accepted more than $50,000 in cash bribes for reportedly smuggling in contraband at Crossroads Juvenile Detention Center, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York. About 120 youth between the ages of 14 and 20 are being detained at the Brooklyn facility.
