Hidden Mobile Phones Plotting Crimes from Prisons

mobile phones have been recovered in Yorkshire jails at a rate of one a day. Authorities have discovered that prisoners are hiding hundreds of mobile phones to organise crimes from the jail.

Prison Officers Association (POA) spokesman Glyn Travis said, "We believe that, nationally, there is one mobile phone, charger and Sim card for every 10 prisoners, which is absolutely ridiculous.” Prison officers believe there are up to 2,000 and have called for mobile phone reception in jails to be blocked so inmates cannot order killings or arrange drug deals from inside.

Justice Minister Maria Eagle revealed that the authorities found 4,461 mobiles and 4,325 Sim cards in prisons in England and Wales between February 2009 and January this year.

Lindholme prisoner George Moon used a contraband mobile and two Sim cards to run an international cocaine ring, liaising with a contact in a Panama jail to smuggle drugs worth £300,000 into the UK. Prison services are much awaiting for a trailing technology that would block mobile phone signals yet no complete solution has been found to tackle this problem.
