A prisoner at the Department of a corrections Mangilao facility may face additional charges following the discovery of contraband.
An unannounced search of a cell in Post 5 at the DOC Mangilao compound last night resulted in the discovery of a cellphone and charger.
DOC’s Special Operations Response Team, or SORT, carried out the search of the level one detainee unit, and according to DOC Major Antone Aguon, the items were found on a detainee’s person.
The identity of the detainee has not been disclosed.
The items confiscated have been turned over to the Guam Police Department for further investigation. Aguon says that the detainee will face internal disciplinary charges and has since been moved to Post 6, the maximum security unit in which prisoners detained in the unit are only authorized an hour outside of their cells a day.
