2 Foreign Nationals Trying to Smuggle Illegal Drugs in Taguig Jail Arrested
The Bureau of Immigration (BI) files additional charges against two (2) foreign nationals who allegedly attempted to smuggle illegal drugs inside the jail in Taguig.
According to the Bureau of Immigration, a Somali and a Korean national were arrested after they were detected carrying illegal substances known as “shabu” into the Taguig City Jail. When the jail officer handed Nam Sangmin, 42, a pack of cigarettes, Ali Osman Mohamed, 37, was noticed, according to BI Commissioner Jaime Morente.
Illegal substances were allegedly found in the carton of smokes. According to the article, in addition to the case they are facing, the two foreigners’ chances of being charged with illegal drug possession would grow.
The record revealed that Mohamed was first arrested in 2019 for being overstaying. Nam, on the other hand, was wanted in South Korea for a financial scam in 2018.
Meanwhile, The Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BMJP) is looking into the alleged use of a drone camera to deliver illegal substances to the Davao City Jail. A member of Barangay Ma-a noticed a drone carrying three bundles of suspected shabu near the jail, according to the report.
Meanwhile, the next day, jail staff discovered sachets of suspected shabu hidden in a “chicken-pork adobo” lunch being smuggled into the city jail annex. Following two foiled efforts to carry shabu into the Davao City Jail in Barangay Ma-a, the BJMP-Davao has vowed to beef up security measures to prevent people from smuggling illegal substances into the facility.
