BJMP, PDEA, police turn QC Jail inside out
Combined elements of the Bureau of Jail Management Penology (BJMP), Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, and Quezon City Police District conducted a surprise inspection at the Quezon City Jail on Monday morning, Radyo Inquirer reported.
The inmates were asked to get out of their dormitories and gathered at the basketball court in the operation dubbed as Oplan Greyhound.
Warden Ermelito Moral of the BJMP said they aimed to get rid of the contraband within the jail premises.
Authorities used sniffer dogs to look for hidden contraband like illegal drugs, firearms or cell phones, the report said.
There are five dormitories and four groups at the jail: the Batang City Jail or BCJ, Sputnik, Bahala na Gang and Komando. /cbb
