Authorities of the Bohol District Jail (BDJ) confiscated improvised bladed weapons, cash, cellphones and other contraband during a raid of jail cells at dawn on Wednesday.
According to BDJ warden Jail Chief Insp. Felipe Montejo, the joint Greyhound Operation was conducted by Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) policemen and jail guards at 4 a.m.
Montejo bared that in one jail cell, operatives found wads of cash amounting to P29,593.
The cell was reportedly occupied by Christopher Buslon who is facing double murder charges and is a “chief expediter” or a ranking inmate in the entire detention facility.
According to Montejo, Buslon is now under investigation due to the large amount of cash found in his jail space.
Meanwhile, Montejo clarified that no drugs were found inside the jail facility contrary to previous reports.
The Greyhound Operation was carried out in accordance with the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology’s directive to conduct regular inspections inside jail cells.
It was the first operation of its kind conducted under the leadership of Montejo as warden.
Montejo replaced former BDJ warden Jail Chief Insp. Jose Rusylvi Abueva in March.
Abueva who is set to move up in rank started to attend a yearlong course for his promotion to superintendent. (Allen Doydora)
