Over the course of the last two weeks, the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC), along with help from the Joint Forces Penitentiary Squad and Kingston Police, seized multiple packages of contraband intended to make its way inside Collins Bay Institution.
According to CSC, the packages were seized on the perimeter of the Institution “as the result of the vigilance of staff members.” The items seized included a large quantity of drugs and cell phone accessories. The type of drugs seized was marijuana, the CSC said.
The total estimated institutional value of these seizures is $91,711.
“The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) has measures in place to prevent contraband and unauthorized items from entering its institutions in order to help ensure a safe and secure environment for everyone. CSC also works in partnership with the police to take action against those who attempt to introduce contraband and/or unauthorized items into correctional institutions,” CSC said in a release.
“CSC has set up a telephone tip line for all federal institutions so that it may receive additional information about activities relating to security at CSC institutions.
