Sheriff's spokesman Lt. Cody Burk said the department received a tip about Mills collecting nine inmate's names and social security numbers prior to the arrest.
Mills had been employed at the detention facility less than a year, according to Burk, and she has been terminated from her employment at the sheriff's office.
According to Mills' Facebook page, her prior job was a nurses aid at a Little Rock rehab center.
Investigators have not been able to find fraudulent actions taken against the inmates, and the investigation is ongoing, the release said.
A search of court records reveals that Mills had a history of financial problems resulting in a lien being filed against her by the Department of Finance & Administration for non-payment of state income taxes.
