March: Man Took Drugs Into Jail
A man caught smuggling drugs into Whitemoor Prison in Cambridgeshire has been jailed for two years.
23 year old Marcio Daniel [pictured - right], from Nigel Fisher Way, Chessington, Surrey, tried to smuggle Cannabis and Cocaine into the jail near the town of March in April.
Cambridgeshire Police say he was taking it there to give to his friend, who was convicted of murder in 2009.
Ahead of Daniel arriving at the jail, Prison Officers were given intelligence that he would try to smuggle the drugs inside.
When officers arrived to carry out a search, Daniel admitted to having drugs hidden down his trousers.
Cannabis and cocaine with an estimated street value of about £1,000, were discovered.
Daniel was arrested and charged with bringing a prohibited article into a prison.
He pleaded guilty and yesterday (Wednesday) at Cambridge Crown Court he was sentenced to two years in jail
Detective Constable Emily Clarke said: "Drugs are banned from prisons across the country for obvious reasons.
The prison relies on staff keeping security tight to prevent such contraband entering the jail.
Daniel was caught and I hope the sentence serves as a warning to anyone who considers taking drugs or other forbidden items into prison."
