A fellow prison officer was arrested Wednesday afternoon (03/06), inside the Halkida Detention Center, while trying to put drug pills and cell phones in jail, which was an "order" from prisoners, something he has been systematically paying for lately.
Specifically, the prison officer, who is a fixed-term private law contractor, was located after information that was used appropriately by the Directorate of the Halkida Detention Center and yesterday a surprise investigation was carried out by prison officials in the individual backpack that he brought with him when he entered the prisons to take up service..
They were found in the backpack and confiscated:
– 203 drug tablets ecstasys,
– 10 sim cards and
– 5 mobile phones and 5 headphones.
The Halkida Security Department was immediately informed about the incident, which undertook the preliminary investigation.
According to pre-investigation results, the person arrested for importing the above items to the Halkida Detention Center would receive 800 euro, while in the last six months he had carried out four other similar operations, obtaining 1.700 euro.
A case was filed against the detainee for possession, importation and trafficking of drugs, for breach of duty and for bribery for illegal acts, with which he was taken to the competent prosecutor.
He was prosecuted for the above-mentioned offenses and was referred to the investigator of Chalkida for an apology.. In addition, disciplinary proceedings were instituted against him immediately.
