Rio’s radio station “BandNews FM” has reported that police officers are investigating the person who allowed 243 gallons of beer to enter a Brazilian prison.  According to “BandNews FM”, 2,600 cans of beer were delivered to a northern Rio de Janeiro jail Sunday morning.

Police inspector Waldyr Soares Filho told journalists that authorities are investigating the person who allowed the beer delivery into the facility, a special prison that only holds former corrupt cops.

Last month, local news papers published photographs of a party thrown at the same prison by former officer Carlos Ari Ribeiro, charged with 16 counts of murder. He escaped shortly after the party.

In response to the publication of the images, commanding officer of the battalion, Coronel Mario Sergio Duarte, said that the prison would be moved to a more secure location, and that the inmates would have to wear uniforms.
