Police have been called in to investigate the disappearance of a television set from Her Majesty’s Prisons at Richmond Hill, St. George’s.
A high level source confided to THE NEW TODAY Newspaper that the television, which was located at the Canteen on the prison compound was discovered missing two weeks ago.
The source who spoke on condition of not being identified spoke of a prison officer claiming that he had seen the item the night before leaving the building but upon returning the following morning discovered that it was missing.

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF) has been called in to look into the case of the missing TV set at the prison.
Meanwhile, violence is slowly making its way inside of Richmond Hill Prisons.
