SCI agents say Bloods use inmate accounts to transfer money to buy drugs and phones behind bars. The panel says gang members are helped by corrupt corrections officers, prison staff and visitors.
One corrections officer told the panel he was paid $600 to smuggle a cell phone to a gang member.
The SCI says the Corrections Department doesn't have the staff and expertise to detect cell phones in prisons.
The SCI expects to issue a series of recommendations to stem gang activities in the spring.
