Police in this city seized illegal drugs, gambling paraphernalia, money and weapons from, of all places, a prison.

That prison: Cebu City in the Philippines.

Operatives found more than 20 gambling tally sheets as well as lists of code names, number combinations and P18,000 worth of bet money during its Operation Greyhound at  Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC) in Barangay Kalunasan here.

“The items we found are enough proof that the inmates are involved in gambling inside CPDRC,” said Supt. Mario Baquiran, head of the police’s Provincial Public Safety Company.

Police also confiscated 230 grams of crystal meth.

CPDRC gained international prominence in 2007 when a video of the inmates dancing to Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” went viral after it was posted on YouTube, a video-sharing website.

Tuesday’s operation was the fifth raid on CPDRC since July last year.
