Haverigg prioner's web drugs boast
Last updated at 17:36, Tuesday, 11 September 2012
AN armed thug may get time added to his sentence after the Evening Mail discovered him using social networking sites from his prison cell.
David Wibberley was jailed in February for cannabis possession and in 2009 he was sentenced to four years eight months for his part in a series of armed raids in Runcorn between March 8 and April 15, 2008.
An Evening Mail investigation discovered the thug brazenly breaking prison rules using a mobile phone to access the Facebook site.
Wibberley, 23, of Liverpool, posted updates boasting of “chilling” in his “pad”, as well as “skinning up” and being “whiffed out me ed” while at HMP Haverigg.
On Sunday he posted: “yooo bk on d book! nice! nice! Jus chilin in hmp haverigg! NICE!” Jus chilin in hmp wid nas on whiffed out me ed on d book! nice!” He added: “yano wot am finkin...it skin up agen! “proper whipped chilin in me pad in hmp on d book jus ow jail shud b haha nice!”
Friends contacted Wibberley asking what he had been up to.
He revealed he had been arrested in February and hopes to be released in May.
This is the second incident the Evening Mail has revealed this year. In March armed robber Michael Haggan appealed for penpals using a Blackberry from his prison cell in HMP Haverigg which resulted in him serving extra jail time. The Evening Mail understands Wibberley will have time added to his sentence.
Wibberley’s Facebook page has now been deactivated and although the Ministry of Justice said it is unable to comment on individual cases, it is standard practice for inmates to have time added to their sentence for breaking the rules.
A Prison Service spokesman said: “Prisoners have no access to the internet and are barred from updating Facebook while serving their sentence, or asking others to do so from outside prison. If they do, their accounts will be terminated.
“It is a criminal offence to have a mobile phone in prison and we work hard to keep them out. Any prisoner found in possession of one will be dealt with appropriately.”
A HMP Haverigg spokesman said he was unable to comment.

If he finds it so easy then maybe they should add 12 months per boast? ... Certainly another 18 months to teach him some decent grammar skills.
