A MAN who was caught smuggling drugs into prison was jailed yesterday.
Marcio Daniel, 23, of Chessington, Surrey, was caught by HMP Whitemoor officers on April 12 trying to smuggle cannabis and cocaine into the prison for his friend, who was convicted of murder in 2009.
He pleaded guilty at Cambridge Crown Court and was sentenced to two years in jail.
Prison officers received intelligence that Daniel would bring the banned items into the prison when he next visited his friend.
When officers arrived to carry out a search, Daniel admitted to having cannabis and cocaine, with an estimated street value of about £1,000, hidden down his trousers.
