Phuket’s White Prison status untainted by porn cache

PHUKET: The overcrowded Phuket Provincial Prison maintained it’s unblemished White Prison status despite dirty magazines, as well as other contraband, being turned up in a pre-dawn raid this morning.

“We searched all possible places that inmates could be hiding contraband and found three adult-content magazines, two pairs of box cutters and a leather belt,” said Phuket Prison Chief Rapin Nichanon.

All the items – including the adult magazines – were confiscated, Mr Rapin said.

No charges were brought against those prisoners found in possession of the contraband.

As part of the inspection, 340 inmates – 250 males and 90 females – were selected at random to be tested for drugs.

“None of them tested positive,” Mr Rapin said.
