On 27 Jul 05 during a shakedown of the women’s
block at the Washington County Jail, Corrections Officers discovered
a small braided rope fashioned from a bed sheet. When questioned
as to the origin of the rope the owner stated she braided the
rope to make a hair tie by tearing sections out of a sheet
in the rag bin of the laundry room. Because the inmate did
not have permission to deface the sheet and that possessing
the rope is forbidden this case remains under investigation
