Contraband: Spinach and wax figurines, weapons


These images of spinach and wax figurines were submitted by a C1 reader, along with this description:

Two small, green figurines were discovered in the outgoing mail.  During a debrief interview, an inmate was shown the figurines.  The inmate advised they were made from spinach and floor wax.  He said inmates were also making knives using the same materials.  The spinach is formed into an ice pick shape and allowed to dry out.  It is then coated with the floor wax which hardens.  The knife does not set off the metal detector.  The inmate said it is only good for about three strikes, but if done right, that is all is needed.
