Curran-Fromhold Shut Down Amid 'Serious Contraband' Search

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

SkyFOX was over the Curran-Fromhold Correctional Facility along State Road in Northeast Philadelphia on Monday night.

Officials tell us the prison was shut down during a search for "serious contraband."

It's not clear exactly what police were looking for. As of late Monday night, their search had come up empty.

Mayor Michael Nutter is supposed to attend a press conference there Tuesday morning to launch a new program that trains inmates in the environmental technologies field.

There's no word yet on whether that press conference is still being held.
