Guam – Two attempts to smuggle contraband into the Department of Corrections over the weekend were foiled by DOC guards.
The first attempt was made on Friday evening when a DOC officer noticed an inmate in an area he was not supposed to be. The inmate according to DOC Deputy Director Kate Baltazar was assigned to cleaning detail but instead was found outside the Post 5 housing unit entangled in the barbed wire. Baltazar says that the inmate was attempting to retrieve a package from the fence line. The package contained two mobile phones, two chargers, two sim cards, two canisters of chewing tobacco, 20 cigarettes and a package containing an unknown amount of tobacco.
The second attempt was made on Saturday evening but this time, only a package was discovered. The contents of the package were not disclosed however, Baltazar says that the package was found in zone 5 behind Post 5 during a routine perimeter check.
The packages were turned over to the Guam Police Department.
