A man who smuggled class A drugs into Whitemoor prison has been jailed for more than three years.
Kurtiss Gordon, 20, concealed the “hens egg sized package” containing herbal cannabis, a legal high (now a class C drug) and MDMA, and smuggled it past the security at HMP Whitemoor, near March.
Prison officers witnessed Gordon handing over the package while he visited an inmate.
Gordon, of Villa Street, Newton, Birmingham, pleaded guilty to three counts of conveying a list A article and on Monday October 12 he was sentenced at Peterborough Crown Court to three years and six months.
DC Emily Nutton said: “We have been working closely with the prison service to secure this conviction and we will continue to work with them to prevent drugs going into prisons.
