Contraband Used to Hide Illegal Items Seized at J. Reuben Long Detention Center

The Horry County Sheriff’s Office recently seized a ‘card creation’ considered contraband at J. Reuben Long Detention Center. Deputies say it appeared the inmate purchased a deck of cards from the commissary and built a box with compartments to hide illegal drugs. He even used deodorant labels to stick the cards together. The box qualifies as contraband because it was altered from its intended purpose. Along with the box, deputies also seized a handmade tattoo gun and medication from the inmate.
