ALDEN, NY-- A New York State Corrections Officer who has been on paid leave on a workers comp claim since last month, is facing drug charges in the state of Illinois.

It happened last week in the City of LaSalle.
Bonilla had worked from 2007 to 2012 at the Wyoming Correctional facility, but transferred to Wende in Alden in August of this year.
The 36 year old is charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.
