The dark arts

of New Zealand prisons

They are some of the most creative and innovative problem-solvers in New Zealand – unfortunately they’re in prison.

It is that ability to think outside the box that’s seen 141 seizures of what’s called “Homebrew Substances” over the past six years at Waikato’s Spring Hill and Waikeria prisons.

Stuff has obtained information about the amount of illicit booze, and a range of other contraband items seized, thanks to a Department of Corrections response to an Official Information Act request.

Stuff asked what prohibited items, and how many, had been confiscated at both prisons.
