WARTBURG - The Department of Correction is currently investigating the discovery of weapons smuggled into the Morgan County Correctional Complex.  Two guns were found inside a package delivered to the institution this morning.

"This is a serious threat to the safety and security of both staff and inmates at the institution," said Commissioner George M. Little.  "I have directed our internal affairs division to launch an aggressive investigation into this threat and pursue vigorous action against those involved."

The Morgan County Complex is being thoroughly searched for evidence of other possible contraband.
