There was a thoroughly conducted search in Nebraska State Penitentiary on Wednesday. In their report, the officials claimed that this was a unique action taken on the state prison. Various law enforcement units joined forces in this search and confiscated a large number of weapons and drugs during the prison lockdown.
The entire action started at half-past five in the morning on Wednesday when the inmates and the prison staff got the information on the lockdown. The thorough scrutiny of the facility lasted for hours.
One of the state officials said that this joint police action was meticulously planned for over a month. It was also a carefully kept secret because any information leakage could have diminished the effects of such an operation.
The police search ended by Wednesday evening when both inmates and the prison staff were able to return to their regular activities.
