CONCORD (CBS) – Prison security guards search religiously to catch contraband before it gets into the state’s prisons.

This week, the Massachusetts Department of Corrections found banned items hidden in an unlikely place.

Suboxone strips were found in a prayer card at Massachusetts Correctional Institution (MCI) Concord on Tuesday.

The prayer card had been mailed to a prisoner, but was spotted before it got in their hands.

Corrections officials said the strips are usually cut into small pieces and sold for up to $100 each.
