A 36-year-old woman was apprehended after trying to sneak 60 sticks of cigarette hidden in her genitals Sunday afternoon in the Navotas City Jail (NCJ).
NCJ Warden Chief Insp. Ricky Heart Pegalan said Generose Candelario of No. 388 Gov. Pascual St. Navotas City, will be barred from visiting her husband drug detainee Christian Lazaro, for three months for violating the jail existing rules.
Pegalan said Candelario was aware of the bureau’s policies banning cigarettes and other contraband in jails since she regularly visits her husband.
Candelario was about to enter the jail vicinity to visit her husband at around 2:35 p.m. when duty guard JO1 Gennylyn Pinanching felt something unusual in her groin while patting her body during a routine inspection.
When JO1 Pinanching ask Candelario to undergo strip and cavity search, she found the contraband wrapped in cigarette foil and transparent cling wrap inserted in her vaginal cavity.
