Police were today called into HMP Prison at Dodds, St Philip to investigate reports that illegal drugs were found in that penal institution.
All Police Public Relations Officer Acting Station Sergeant Roland Cobbler would say is that they received a report from the prison. Assistant Superintendent of Prisons DeCarlo Payne also confirmed that police had responded to a report that contraband had been introduced into the institution.
However, Barbados TODAY understands that a prison officer is at the centre of investigation into the drug find, which was reportedly made in shoes stored in a locker.
So far, no charges have been laid.
