Staff at Mission Medium Security Institution have seized another package of contraband.

On Dec. 5, a package containing contraband items was seized. The items included a USB stick, hash, and tobacco. The total estimated institutional value of this seizure is $14,000.

Last week, Nov. 28, staff intercepted a package containing cell phones and chargers, a smart watch, headphones, tobacco, rolling papers, and various narcotics – hash, methamphetamines, marijuana, and pills. The total estimated institutional value of this seizure was $89,000.

The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) uses a number of tools to prevent drugs from entering its institutions. These tools include ion scanners and drug-detector dogs to search buildings, personal property, inmates and visitors.

The police have been notified and the institution is investigating.

The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) has set up a telephone tip line for all federal institutions to receive additional information about activities relating to security at CSC institutions. These activities may be related to drug use or trafficking that may threaten the safety and security of visitors, inmates and staff members working at CSC institutions.

The toll-free number, 1-866-780-3784, helps ensure that the information shared is protected and that callers remain anonymous.
