A former prison guard who smuggled drugs into jail in her underwear has been jailed for three years.
The Prison guard, Hannah Gaves, 27, was stopped and searched while on her way into Erlestoke Prison, Wiltshire on the 27th of January last year.
After the search on that day, cocaine was found concealed in her underwear. In addition she was also in possession of black bags containing cannabis, five packets of tobacco and Rizzlas.

Following intelligence on what was discovered on her, authorities swooped into action, and searched the cell of an inmate who always got special attentions and preferential treatments from Gaves. A SIM card and tobacco were also discovered. That shows she has been running the smuggling business aground overtime.
Below is a summary of what is up about Hannah Gavas:
- Hannah Gaves formerly worked as a prison guard at Erlestoke Prison in Wiltshire
- She today pleaded guilty at Salisbury Crown Court to a string of drug offences

Following the year long legal trial in the court of law, Gaves, from Gloucester, pleaded guilty to a string of drug offences at Salisbury Crown Court.
These included possession with intent to supply a Class A drug, possession with intent to supply a Class B drug and attempt to bring tobacco behind bars.
After pleading guilty to the charges, she was sentenced to three years in prison and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £170.
Timeline to her arrest suggests that Erlestoke Prison near Devizes, where Gaves worked as a guard, had received intelligence that she was smuggling articles into the prison.
The Category C men’s prison houses inmates who cannot be trusted in an open prison but who are recognized as being unlikely to make any escape attempts.
Detective Sergeant Garry Epps, from the Crime Targeting Team, said: ‘There is simply no tolerance for the behavior shown by Gaves in this case.
‘The custodial sentence that has been given further highlights the severity of Gaves’ actions and we hope acts as a deterrent to anyone who thinks they may be able to get away with anything similar.
‘There is no excuse for ever falling into such activities and we will always act strongly against anyone attempting to take drugs or any form of contraband into our prisons.’
Local Inspector Chris Martin said: ‘We will always act on intelligence given to us and not only patrol the parameters of the prison robustly but also the comings and goings inside the prison as well.
‘This case highlights the ongoing partnership work between Wiltshire Police and staff at HMP Erlestoke to disrupt the illegal supply of drugs into the prison.’
