NC prisons get tougher in fight against smuggled drugs and cellphones

"Weeks after the Observer published an investigation into widespread corruption in North Carolina’s prisons, state officials have begun testing new ways to prevent employees from smuggling drugs, cellphones and other contraband to inmates.

At Lanesboro Correctional Institution, 45 miles southeast of Charlotte, workers reporting for duty now must take off their shoes and pass them through an X-ray machine, staff members told the Observer. Employees are also now required to walk past devices that are designed to find contraband cellphones."

Depends if they break it? Or flush it.... if it is broken in little pieces they get 2 infractions for one phone and 12 months in the hole. If they just got caught its 6 months in the hole no calls. U can write at least that's what happens in pasquotank. (If he gets to transfer I would say do t go there). Everything way Stricker
