Arouca police are investigating death threats made against two prison officers. 

The threats were made on Tuesday night at the Maximum Security Prison on Golden Grove Road, Arouca. 

Loop News was told that the prison officers were conducting patrols in separate areas of the prison when they were both confronted by two prisoners. 

One prisoner told a 33-year-old prison officer, “Longdenville boss watch your back. We coming out just now.” 

The other officer was told by an inmate, “All allyuh tun key dead; especially you 500 boss”. 

The two prison officers, as residents in the aforementioned communities, became fearful and made a report to the senior officers of the prison service.
