ILLEGAL drugs, particularly shabu, could not have entered jail facilities by sheer happenstance. It’s a product of planning.
And yes, collusion between jail personnel and drug peddlers is highly possible, according to Senior Superintendent Rex Delarmente, regional director of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology 6 (BJMP-6).
Delarmente’s statement came in the heels of the result of a random drug test conducted on some inmates of the Iloilo District Jail at Barangay Nanga, Pototan, Iloilo.
The drug test was conducted after the new IDJ warden, Superintendent John Montero, took over the jail facility on Oct. 1, 2017.
Tested positive for illegal drug use were Marque “Boyet” Acap, Jr., Randy Legazpi, Jovern Abantao, and Tomas Gan.
