Seizure of Contraband and Unauthorized Items at Warkworth Institution

In Editor Choice, Local, Police Blotter

On July 22, as a result of the vigilance of staff members, several packages of contraband were seized as a result of a
suspected drone drop at Warkworth institution, a medium security facility.

The seized items included a large quantity of tobacco and drugs. The total estimated institutional value of this seizure is $295,920.

The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) has measures in place to prevent contraband and unauthorized items from
entering its institutions in order to help ensure a safe and secure environment for everyone. CSC also works in partnership with the police to take action against those who attempt to introduce contraband and/or unauthorized items into correctional institutions

CSC has set up a telephone tip line for all federal institutions so that it may receive additional information about activities relating to security at CSC institutions. These activities may be related to drug use or 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.
