A man was arrested after trying to smuggle illegal drugs inside a jail in Baguio City.

Joel Altar was arrested after he brought a raw pig intestine that was stuffed with methamphetamine hydrochloride (shabu) for inmate Bernardo Oliveros, a notorious drug leader in the province.

Altar claimed he did not know the pig intestine was filled with shabu because he was just asked by Oliveros' wife to bring it to the inmate.

It was not the first time that someone tried to smuggle illegal drugs for Oliveros inside the jail. - Umagang Kay Ganda, May 29 2012
