Possession of hash adds 45 days to sentence

    An inmate at the Drumheller Institution had 45 days tacked onto his sentence after guards found hash in his underwear.
    David Badger appeared in Provincial Court in Drumheller on Friday, January 13. He pleaded guilty to simple possession of drugs.
    The court heard how on September 18, 2011, institution staff noted the odour of cannabis during a range walk. Badger was strip searched which revealed a chap stick cap containing hash oil in his underwear.
    The institutional value of the seizure was about $750.
    He was given 45 days consecutive to the sentence he is currently serving.
