Curry County jail problems

Posted: Updated:

New Mexico - You might be surprised to hear what a shakedown conducted at the Curry County jail turned up this week.

Authorities say they removed contraband and other illegal items throughout  the facility.

Shanks, meth, prescription medications, even a hand drawn map of the jail were all seized.

The map is of course concerning for obvious reasons, but also because of the number of escapes the jail has seen in the past.

The intel unit is now performing a security assessment of the facility.
