A plastic bag filled with marijuana found on the eastern side of Golden Grove remand facility in Arouca on Tuesday, led to a search of the area of the prison known as ‘the cow pen’. That K-9 assisted search resulted in several additional finds.
Reports today reveal that prison officers confiscated marijuana, cell phones, sim cards and other items when that search was conducted. One bag contained 55 cigarettes and some 10 SIM cards were found, along with a mobile phone and batteries.
Enquiries are now underway.
