Police prison raid nets huge haul

State police discovered a major haul of illicit items during a five-hour raid of cells at the Puente Grande penitentiary this week.

Without alerting prison guards or officials, 450 police officers swooped in the middle of the night and uncovered a treasure trove of flat-screen TVs, DVD players, video game consoles, loudspeakers, drugs, medicines and 45,000 pesos in cash.  Several prison officials are being questioned regarding the discovery but Attorney General Eduardo Almaguer said prison director Marisela Gomez Cobos will stay in her post.
