The now fugitives of the prison ‘La Roca’ could make national and international phone calls through a communication system that had been installed, which obviously is prohibited.
This new evidence explains how the escape convicts coordinated their escape. The National Police dismantled the network, however it mocked the expensive antennas of inhibitory signals located in the Coastal penitenciary and the maximum-security prison.
Investigations revealed that the system operated with homemade antennas, located around the prison. The antenna receives the signal at a wireless telephone base, which is connected to a modem chip, in a conventional system, not celular. Subsequently the headphones were entered into the prison so inmates could make calls, explained Colonel Wladimir Leon, the operating chief that disarmed this network.
Additionally, it was found that the defendants paid from 600 to 700 dollars a month to maintain the underground system, said Leon. So far three persons were arrested, the ones who were in charge of taking care of the antennas inside a house. The penalty for commercializing telecommunications services, without being legally entitled, is up to five years in prison.
