Inmate caught distributing heroin in a sandwich

A man who was already serving a 30-year-sentence for murder was sentenced to another 18 months after he was caught distributing drugs inside Corradino Correctional Facility.

The man had handed a sandwich to another inmate, which had caught the prison guard’s interest back in 2007. The sandwich was later found to contain a sachet with brown powder later confirmed to be heroin.

Tha Magistrate stated that the prison guard’s version of events was consistent and supported by the testimony given by the Major. The accused was given another 18 months behind the bars and fined €900 while his accomplice was handed a five-month sentence.
