Correctional officers found a HK$100 banknote from articles handed in by a visitor in Lai Chi Kok Reception Centre yesterday (August 5).
At 3.55pm, the staff conducted security check on hand-in items from visitors and found a HK$100 banknote concealed in a book which was intended to give to a 39-year-old male person in custody. As the banknote is not an approved item for handing to persons in custody, the case was reported to the Police for investigation.
The man was convicted for an offence of driving whilst disqualified.
