Over 700 inmate-made weapons seized in Chilean prisons (+Photo)

Santiago de Chile, Jul 28 (Prensa Latina) As many as 729 inmate-made weapons, 321 cell phones and 2.7 kgs of drugs were seized by the Chilean gendarmerie (GENCHI) in a new raid conducted in the country's 30 prisons as part of the National Prison Security Plan against Organized Crime.

According to an information posted on Twitter, GENCHI’s Subrogating Director Víctor Provoste stated nine raids were carried out in 2023, the same number as in 2022.

The operations are important since allow us to keep order in prisons, reach a much better in-security, avoid putting inmates and staff at risk and to avert crimes from being committed outside,” said the Undersecretary of Justice Jaime Gajardo.
