A Suffolk prisoner was caught red-handed with a mobile phone by staff on New Year’s Eve, a court heard.
Ipswich Crown Court heard how Isaak Willmot-Grey, 26, was caught with a smart phone at Hollesley Bay prison, near Woodbridge, on December 31, 2018.
The court heard that Willmot-Grey was serving a five-and-a-half year sentence for drugs charges and was jailed in October 2017.
On New Year's Eve, 2018, officers were conducting checks and caught Willmot-Grey red-handed with the smart phone which he tried to conceal.
Upon a search, the phone was discovered and Willmot-Grey was subsequently transferred to a different prison in Nottinghamshire.
