DAVAO CITY - A man who was supposed to visit an inmate at the Davao City Jail Annex on Friday afternoon was also put in prison after he was caught with shabu in his underwear.

Seized from suspect Rolando Luna were two sachets of shabu, which he wrapped with an electrical tape and put in his underwear.

Luna admitted that he was supposed to give the contraband to his former neighbor, Lester Casquejo, who has been in detention for four years now over a murder case.

Luna said just last July 19, he was able to successfully bring shabu inside the city jail.

Jail personnel admitted the security lapses. They said they will tighten their policies for searching visitors of inmates.

Both Luna and Casquejo were brought to the Talomo Police Station. They will face charges for violation of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act.
