THIRTEEN mobile phones, cigarettes and nails were confiscated in an early morning anti-illegal drugs operation at the Cebu City Jail.
There were no illegal drugs including illegal drug paraphernalia that were found from inmates as personnel from the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology-Central Visayas conducted the greyhound operation, around 4 a.m. Thursday, April 12.
Cebu City Jail warden, Superintendent Renante Rubio said they instead discovered a new modus by inmates where their contacts from the outside tie packs of cigarettes and other contraband in a rope.
The inmates will then pull the pack to their side. Rubio said this is called “fishing.”
Before, outsiders will throw contrabands in thickly wrapped plastic to avoid damage, to inmates through walls or its towers, and sneak it inside the jail facility.
The greyhound, part of the BJMP's Oplan Linis Piitan, was simultaneously conducted at the Lapu-Lapu City Jail.
