KFAR SABA, Israel, Jan. 23 (UPI) -- Israeli authorities said the driver of a truck delivering bread to a prison was arrested after 6 ounces of hashish was found stashed inside a loaf.
Investigators said the 56-year-old driver, whose name was not released, was arrested Thursday by Kfar Saba Police when the drug was found stuffed into a loaf of bread that arrived at HaSharon Prison, Ynetnews reported Monday.
The driver told police he was not responsible for loading the truck and did not know anything about the hashish.
"We always come across different smuggling methods of drugs, weapons and cellular devices -- some are carried out through civilian drivers who bring supplies to the prison," said Lt. Col. Natan Paz, an Israeli Prison Service commander.
"We must not generalize, but some drivers have been involved in such acts. It's usually those drivers who have been persuaded by the prisoners to do the smuggling. We always need to be on the lookout."
