Officials at Stony Mountain Institution seized more than $135,000 in contraband in the facility last week.

The Correctional Service of Canada says the seizure was made on February 19 and included cocaine, USB card readers, a cell phone and accessories.

The items were found by vigilant staff members in the maximum-security unit of the prison, located north of Winnipeg.

“The Correctional Service of Canada is heightening measures to prevent contraband from entering its institutions in order to help ensure a safe and secure environment for everyone,” the CSC said in a release.
