A maximum-security inmate at the adult correctional facility in Mangilao previously accused of promoting major prison contraband has been arrested again on the same allegation.

Shawn Paul Johnson was among the inmates accused in the August 2017 prison contraband conspiracy that led to the arrest of 12 people including prison guards.

On Wednesday of this week, he was arrested again on a charge of promotion of major prison contraband.

During an unannounced search of his prison cell DOC officer seized a mobile phone. The magistrate report states that Johnson tried to “conceal the cell phone in his crotch area.”
