Two packages containing contraband and unauthorized items were seized by staff at Collins Bay Institution on March 11, a news release from Correctional Service Canada issued Wednesday said.
The items were delivered from a suspected drone drop, the release said.
The seized items included 466 grams of tobacco, 369 grams of marijuana, 53 grams of shatter (cannabis concentrate), drug paraphernalia, as well as cellphones and accessories.
The correctional service uses several tools to prevent drugs from entering its institutions, including ion scanners and detector dogs to search buildings, personal property, inmates and visitors.
CSC also works in partnership with police to act against those who attempt to introduce contraband or unauthorized items into correctional institutions.
A telephone tip line is available so CSC may receive additional information about activities relating to security at CSC institutions, such as drug use and trafficking that may threaten the safety and security of visitors, inmates and staff members working at CSC institutions.
The toll-free number, 1-866-780-3784, helps ensure that the information shared is protected and that callers remain anonymous.
