Jail Shakedown

Several Houston County inmates are in trouble Tuesday morning for having weapons and alcohol in the jail.

Officials did a thorough search last week to stop rumors of possible contraband.

The commander says all jails have shake downs from time to time to insure the safety of inmates.

All inmates are fully aware of the jail rules and failure to abide by the rules results in disciplinary action.

Authorities discovered a homemade knife that one inmate had made.

They also found homemade liquor the inmates made from fruits and sugars.

This was the first time the jail has had a shake down in about a month.
