Just like high school students hiding their mobile phones from their teachers, the inmates of the New Bilibid Prison were found to have concealed phones and other gadgets in hollowed-out books. Not just any book at that, they used the Bible, no less.
The items were discovered in the Buildings 1 and 2 of NBP’s medium security compund which holds about 3,000 inmates.
The other things confiscated? Computer parts, chargers, signal boosters and wine bottles.
This is the 23rd raid since the “Oplan Galugad” started last November.
According to a report by Inquirer, when NBP Director Supt. Richard Schwarzkopf Jr. was asked why smuggled items still continue to be found even after 20 raids, he said that small things like these could be “brought into the compound by visitors or tossed over the prison walls.”
“The number of contraband items we are getting from the inmates is slowly decreasing with every raid we conduct,” he added.
