Twenty-six sachets of suspected shabu estimated to be worth P13,000, a lighter, and a cellphone were confiscated from an inmate at the Dumaguete City District Jail late Wednesday.

The drugs were found hidden in a yellow pouch, which the inmate was carrying while fetching water from one of the prison's faucets.

One of the guards, Inspector Rolly Bandeling said drugs have been smuggled inside the prison before, prompting authorities to install surveillance cameras in the facility.
