Civet cat, sex toys, airsoft guns found inside Bilibid
NOT only gadgets and firearms were discovered inside the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) in a shakedown conducted Wednesday morning. Authorities also seized a Civet cat locally known as musang whose droppings can be turned into the most expensive coffee in the world.
Eighteen teams from Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) SWAT and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) conducted the raid.
Aside from the cat, also seized were sex toys, drug paraphernalia, over 60 improvised bladed weapons, wooden knuckles, LCD TV, personal refrigerator and an antenna.
The raid was conducted at Dorms 2, 5 and 9.
Dorm 2 is occupied by Sputnik, Commando Gangs, and Dorm 9 is occupied by Commando, Genuine Ilocano and Sputnik. On the other hand, Dorm 5 is occupied also by Sputnik and Commando.
Authorities also seized high-powered firearms, including a baby Armalite under a concrete stage at the back of Dorm 5.
“I think matagal nang nakatago yung mga firearms. It took years para maipon yun. Now lang natin nadi-discover. May mga information kasi na sa inmates din nanggaling,” BuCor Spokesman Msgr. Roberto Olaguer said.
