Campbellford’s Warkworth Institution is under probe after a large amount of narcotics was discovered in the most unusual of places.

It’s not that the drugs were found inside a federal prison that was the shocker. It’s where they were found that has staff and inmates alike at the prison, located about halfway between Toronto and Ottawa, scratching their heads.

And Ontario Provincial Police investigating.

The probe, say sources, began Thursday when contractors found “paper-towel sized” package under a couch “in the boardroom which is adjacent to the warden’s office.”
