Ontario, however, was not alone in announcing illegal contraband had been confiscated over recent weeks. In Alberta, CSC reported the vigilance of staff at the Drumheller Institution ended with the seizure of contraband drugs like LSD, cannabis and THC concentrate earlier this month.

“The total estimated institutional value of these seizures is $65,100,” the CSC reports, adding that the police have been notified and the institution’s investigation is continuing.

No footballs were used in the Drumheller case, but doing so has proved more frequent than many might expect.

This past September in North Carolina, for example, an as-yet unidentified person tossed footballs, tennis balls and two grocery bags stuffed with loose tobacco, marijuana and crystal meth onto the prison grounds. The bounty was discovered between the inner and outer fence of the medium-security institution.
