About 138 inmates and 21 personnel of a district jail in Surigao del Sur on Thursday underwent drug testing, a day after authorities found several contraband items, including at least 8 sachets of suspected “shabu” inside the facility.

The test was administered by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA-Caraga).
