Matsqui/Abbotsford -Inmates continue to be incarcerated in their cells at Matsqui Institution in Abbotsford.
This is Day 3 as guards search for sharp-edged weapons that could be made from a missing knife.
Assistant Warden Gord Tanner said a kitchen worker noticed a blade was missing from a food processor and told superiors at the medium security prison.
The blade could be “split up into a couple of sharp weapons,” said Tanner.
250 inmates have been locked down in their cells since 4PM Sunday afternoon.
