Prison garden now a restricted area

PRISONS Commissioner Gerard Wilson has ordered that a garden located behind the kitchen of the Maximum Security Prison, where cigarettes, marijuana, cell phones, lighters and chargers were found in pigtail buckets buried in the soil, be a restricted area pending the outcome of investigations. The garden was used by prisoners to plant tomatoes, chives, shadon beni and other seasoning, but two weeks ago, a prisoner alerted a senior officer that there were pig tail buckets buried in the garden which contained contraband items. The information was shared with Wilson who ordered a search of the garden and the buckets were found. Wilson yesterday said investigations are ongoing and in the interim, access to the garden is restricted. He said part of the investigation centers around how the items were smuggled into the prison undetected.
