More than 100 illegal items were discovered in Khao Bin Central Prison in Ratchaburi after police raided the compound early Wednesday morning, reports said. Ratchaburi governor Chomchuen Bunyanuson together with a team of policemen and correctional officers raided zone 7 and zone 9 of Khao Bin about 5am after some notorious convicted drug dealers had been transferred from Klong Pai Central Prison in Nakhon Ratchasima. Authorities found a cell phone hidden in an inmate's locker. They also found four SIM cards, cell phone chargers, cables, gambling accessories and sharp improvised weapons.
Khao Bin Central Prison has beefed up security in preparation to receive 200 drug inmates being transferred from other jails. Corrections Department director-general Suchart Wongananchai said on Tuesday that Khao Bin has the best security protection system of all prisons nationwide. The Corrections Department plans to isolate convicted drug inmates suspected of maintaining connections with the illicit drug trade outside prison from other prisoners.
