Area Prison Lockdown Lifted

Pampa's Jordan Unit is no longer under lockdown.  The Texas Department of Criminal Justice says Jordan is one of 15 state prisons lifted from the mandate.

The prisons were able to be searched quickly because of their small size. One instance of tobacco was found at the Jordan unit.

All other Panhandle units are among 96 units still under lockdown.

Governor Rick Perry mandated the lockdown over a week ago when a death row inmate was found making calls with a cell phone.
