Rodents Used To Smuggle Contraband Into A Prison. They discovered that the internal organs were taken out.
Three rats were found inside the property fence of the HMP Guys Marsh in Dorset. This case is thought to be the first ever case of this statue at the correctional facility.
The staff members that were patrolling the property opened up the rats when they saw stitches on the rodents. They discovered that the internal organs were taken out. Instead of the internal organs there were five cell phones and cell phone chargers, three SIM cards, cigarette papers, there also drugs.
According to Sky News, the Ministry of Justice says that the rats were thrown over the fence and an inmate was waiting to collect the three rats. Inmates formerly used pigeons or small balls such as tennis balls to attempt smuggling contraband items in the prison vicinities.
“This find shows the extraordinary lengths to which criminals will go to smuggle drugs into prison, and underlines why our work to improve security is so important,” say Prison Minister Rory Stewart.
HMP Guys Marsh is a category C prison for males. A 2018 report stated that inmates have easy access to cell phones.
