Belfast man sentenced for smuggling drugs into prison using Kinder Egg
Now that's what we call... a Kinder Surprise.
Detective Inspector Lynne Knox of the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) commented on the sentences passed down to Wayne Orr and Gary Coleman this morning (2 May).
Orr had been arrested on suspicion of supplying drugs to a prisoner at HMP Maghaberry last year.
"40 year old Orr, from the Shankill Road area of Belfast, was arrested at HMP Maghaberry in May 2018, after prison staff observed him pass a quantity of cocaine worth over £500 contained in a Kinder Egg, to remand prisoner Coleman," said Knox.
"26 year old Coleman, also from the Shankill area, was sentenced to 4 months imprisonment to run consecutively with a sentence he is currently serving and Orr was sentenced to 28 months imprisonment, 14 months to be served in custody and 14 months on licence."
Knox also added: "The supply and use of illegal drugs are a major scourge on our society and we can all play a part in ridding ourselves from them, and those that seek to profit from them. Anyone with any information about illegal drugs should contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 and tell us what you know."
