Correctional Services Canada is investigating after a package containing unauthorized items was seized at Dorchester Penitentiary in New Brunswick.
In a release Monday, CSC says the package seized in the prison’s medium-security unit on June 6, 2022, included 70 nicotine patches.
It said the “institutional value” of the items was $12,000.
“CSC has measures in place to prevent contraband and unauthorized items from entering its institutions in order to help ensure a safe and secure environment for everyone,” the release said.
The institution says the investigation is ongoing.
