Prison guards at the Kishon jail south of Haifa thwarted an attempt by a 16-year-old from the Lod area to smuggle drugs to a prisoner by hiding them in a new pair of sports shoes. The incident occurred during regular visits to the jail on Saturday. A senior warder was suspicious of the new shoes and decided to remove the soles from the upper part of the sneakers. The inspection uncovered 50 tablets believed to be ecstasy in one of the soles and 250 grams of hashish in the other. The teenager was taken to the nearby Zevulun police station for questioning and was returned to the jail in the evening - this time as a detainee.
