Last week, staff at the Beaver Creek Institution busted a shipment of contraband on the perimeter of the Gravenhurst institution. 

Around 7:00 pm on Friday, April 16th, authorities said packages containing contraband and unauthorized items were seized on the perimeter of the multi-level security facility.

A large quantity of drugs and tobacco were seized, as well as cell phones and cell phone accessories at a total estimated institutional value of $78,207.

The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) has a telephone tip line for all federal institutions so that it may receive additional information about activities relating to security at CSC institutions. 

The toll-free number, 1-866-780-3784, helps ensure that the information shared is protected and that callers remain anonymous.
