The 550 policemen who paid a surprise visit to an Acapulco penitentiary with the intention of transferring 60 inmates to a different jail, never expected what they found inside.

An inmate transfer operation turned into a raid when officers found 100 battle cocks and two turkeys cohabitating with the inmates.

Police seized weapons, liquor, 100 LCD TVs, videogames and two sacks filled with marijuana. 

In addition, police found 6 inmates from the neighboring female unit living in the cells of their partner male prisoners, as well as 19 sex-workers, not registered as inmates.

After the raid, the 60 inmates were successfully transferred and everyone and everything else that didn’t belong there was removed.

The Attorney General office of Guerrero has launched an investigation against prison management.
