Drugs. Booze. Weapons. This alpha is all about contraband.nbsp;Steal weapons and tools from the workshop, drugs from sick bay or Whisky and Smokes from the Warden's office.

Now you have to think a bit harder about what room types to include, because whilst visitation calms the little darlings, they'll also use it to smuggle their methadone fix in a baby's nappy.

Search a prisoner, a cell, or order a whole prison shakedown and find out who's got what and from whence it came. Careful though, too many unwarranted searches will result in a riot...
