Authorities found dozens of handmade weapons inside a Georgia prison that’s on lockdown.
Channel 2’s Mark Winne reported last week that eight Georgia prisons are on lockdown because of gang problems, including a homicide. Assistant Commissioner Tim Ward said he wants to send a message to gang members and others that, “We control the prisons. Not the gangs.”
During a shakedown at one of those prisons Tuesday, officers found 68 handmade knives along with other contraband.
Twenty-two tactical teams were called in for the search at Telfair State Prison.
