Contrabands seized

Samoa Police seize contrabands from Tanumalala Prison cells

Amongst the items were razor blades, nails, a keyboard, a guitar, cigarette lighters and batteries.

The search was conducted following a mass breakout involving more than 30 prisoners late last month.

Police said the main objective was to eliminate threats posed by contraband within the prison cells and to minimize threats to the lives of prisoners, prison guards and everyone affiliated with the Prison facility.

‘The search was safely executed with contrabands seized from inside police cells.’
