A prison guard has pleaded guilty to seven charges of accepting bribes for smuggling illegal drugs into jail, according to a report.

Perive Matuaitofiga, 25, appeared in the Huntly District Court where he admitted to trafficking cannabis and tobacco into Spring Hill prison for six months, with an inmate using a cellphone to help arrange the drug deal from jail, TVNZ reported tonight.

Matuaitofiga supplied cannabis and tobacco and struck a deal to supply another drug, similar to ecstasy.

He was being paid $500 for each contraband drop, TVNZ said.
