KIDAPAWAN CITY – Jail authorities arrested Wednesday a 38-year-old woman for attempting to sneak illegal drugs into a penitentiary here.
Reports said the suspect, Sumbra Akmad Uray, 38, farmer, of Barangay Kitulaan, Carmen, North Cotabato, arrived at the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) provincial rehabilitation center at Barangay Amas here, around noon, on board a tricycle.
She brought with her a basket loaded with eggs and bread, which she intended to deliver to a relative identified as Farida Tanggok, a female inmate at the BJMP.
But jail authorities were surprised to see sachets of methamphetamine hydrochloride, locally known as shabu, inside the basket. (Malu Cadelina Manar)
