Narcotics Enforcement Agency (NEA) Director Ismael Aguon said their preliminary investigation revealed that a woman who was incarcerated for alleged possession of illegal drug was the source of meth previously found in prison cell.

In an interview, Aguon said that their preliminary report showed that Happy Fritz, who was arrested in April for alleged possession of meth, was the source of the over 40 grams of meth found in the prison cell on May 3.

The possible involvement of three other prisoners whom Fritz shares the cell with were also previously considered by authorities and although the recent probe pointed out that it was only Fritz who allegedly brought the meth to the prison, Aguon said that urine sample from four prisoners all tested positive for drugs.

“[The preliminary] investigation determined that all of them (Fritz and three other detainees) knew about [the what was later on determined] as meth,” Aguon told the media.

Aguon said that Fritz allegedly brought the meth to the cell when she was incarcerated.

When pressed by the media for the names of the other three prisoners, Aguon said that he cannot yet divulged that particular information as the case is currently at the prosecutor. The NEA director, however, vowed that the names of the other prisoners will be made public soon. (By Rhealyn C. Pojas)
