STONY MOUNTAIN – There is a lockdown in place at Stony Mountain Institution.
It was put in place in the medium and maximum security units at around 9 o’clock this morning.
The search was not sparked by an incident, but rather something they do a few times a year to find contraband items.
Inmates are in lockdown and items will be removed as they are found.
Visits have been suspended and the lockdown will likely last two or three days.
