    Inmate Tricks

    We all know inmates have ways of doing things. I think if we share what they do it might help someone else out.

    In Maine there is no smoking allowed. Well the inmates used to take the lead out of thier pencils, stick them into an electrical socket and use tissue and make a flame from it to light contraband. Well we took away all the pencils so now what they like to do is to take the two small legs off a staple and stick them into the power cord to thier radio. Then they spark it off that. ..

    I bet alot of you already knew this but it was new to me.. anyone else have any?

    In our prison (female BTW) they use the lead from pencils to make make up. Another funny one is taking the state issue pads and making tampons out of them

    In our SHU, we provide them convenient Duress Alarm buttons for when they are in trouble.

    So if you want to light your cig or homeade sugar candle all you've got to do is pull the panel from the wall, and short out the wires. Then secure the panel on the wall with toothpaste.

    Toothpaste works to cover those small little nail holes from when you hang pictures in a college dorm room. I have done it before.

    Toothpaste and some paint and they can make stash holes invisible!

    We had an Inmate in the dorms do that. Took toothpaste and coffee grounds and made a perfect match of the color of the door and hid his tattoo gun inside the door. Our Min security have no locks on thier room doors.
