Corrections officials are trying to find out how an actor visiting the Westchester County Jail was able to take a selfie with an inmate and then post it on social media, according to lohud.com.

The photo, which shows Omari Hardwick, an actor in the Starz series "Power," and prisoner Matthew Draper of Haverstraw has been circulated on the social media accounts of rapper 50 Cent, the show's executive producer and rapper Tony Yayoi, said lohud.com.

It was not clear if the actor was filming at the jail or there for a visit, added lohud.com.

Draper, 47, is being held at the jail until he faces federal drug charges following his Oct. 5, arrest, said lohud.com.

He is accused of planning to import and export drugs from Yonkers to the Dominican Republic, reported lohud.com.

He has served multiple sentences in prison on weapons charges dating back to the 1990s, said lohud.com.
