PHUKET: A pre-dawn search of Phuket Prison today failed to uncover any drugs or contraband being hidden by prisoners.

The mass raid of the entire compound was held to establish the facility’s status as a Department of Corrections “White Prison”.

Phuket Governor Maitri Inthusutwas led about 100 officers, including Phuket Provincial Police Deputy Commander Arayapan Pukbuakao and Phuket Prison Chief Rapin Nichanon, in conducting the mass search, which began at 5:30am.
