Video: Prison Shakedown Finds Contraband Cell Phones

Each of the Wilcox State Prison’s 1,862 inmates were strip searched, then removed from their cells and placed in a holding room. Officers then entered two at a time, sometimes accompanied by a member of the K-9 unit.

By the end of the shakedown, officers had confiscated 32 cell phones, 21 weapons and small amounts of marijuana and meth. Most of the items were well hidden: behind walls, in ceilings or inside of a broken sink.

They said their biggest focus is finding and removing cell phones. Prison warden Robert Toole said they are just as dangerous as weapons.

“Once that one cell phone makes it in, it just opens up the flood gates,” he said. “It allows inmates to communicate, to carry on criminal activity outside the walls. It allows inmates to intimidate possible witnesses.”

Contraband cell phones can be replaced by the meshDETECT secure cell phone solution to reduce the demand for smuggled cell phones and control their use for criminal activity

    There is no way in today’s world that your kids can be outside of ohcosl in NYC without a cell phone. Not to mention the fact that they are just plain fun to have. Although it is important to monitor the cameras my nephews were recently caught sending pictures of themselves (yes, it is exacly what you are thinking ) to girls. They don’t have phones anymore.I personally am tired of business development in the pharma world. Maybe I will set up monthly rental space for kids much like parking in NYC. That’ll really stick it to the man! Can I be featured in your series of street vendors if I do?I have not given up on the embarrassing phones idea yet either. Can you picture a ohcosl VP opening up a BC pill case to see whether or not it is a phone? What a riot!!

    My life was threatened this week by an inmate with cell phone and internet access. I contacted ga state officials and got the run around.
