Officials: Football hiding drugs found near prison fence

HOFFMAN, NC (AP) — Corrections officials say officers at a North Carolina prison found a football filled with drugs near a prison fence last week.

News outlets report that the North Carolina Department of Public Safety says staffers at Morrison Correctional Institution in Hoffman spotted a football in an odd location.

The football was between the inner and outer fences of the prison. Crews grabbed the ball and took it apart. Inside, officials say they found tobacco, marijuana and crystal meth.

Investigators say they were able to link the failed delivery to an offender serving time at the prison.
