Prison officer Danny Michel Francisco Alleyne will spend the next few days in Dodds but not on account of his job.
The 31-year old officer of Denton Road, Grazettes, St. Michael was remanded to prison until Tuesday, April 8 after he appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court today, charged with unlawfully taking three mobile-phone batteries into the prison.
Bail was offered to Alleyne in the amount of $30 000 when he appeared before Magistrate Graveney Bannister but the officer was left with no choice but to go to prison when he did not meet the conditions of the offer.
Police say the illegal items were discovered on Alleyne after he was searched by his colleagues when he reported for duty at the facility located at Dodds, St. Philip.
The prison officer was detained and the police were summoned.
