A prison smuggling scandal was recently uncovered at the New Jersey State Prison. Three of the corrections officers at the facility are suspected of being involved in the affair, as well as 14 inmates and 18 people outside of the facility. The scheme involved smuggling cell phones and drugs into the prison facility for the inmates. Most of the inmates implicated are serving extended sentences in the State Prison.
The smuggling operation was uncovered by investigations conducted by the New Jersey Department of Corrections Special Investigations Division. The prosecutors were especially worried by the smuggling of cell phones because they stated that inmates could use them to orchestrate criminal activity from inside the prison.
Below is a list of people suspected of being involved in the smuggling.
