A tip to deputies at the Pueblo County Jail has uncovered a plan by inmates to bring a gun or drugs into the facility.

Deputies shut down the fourth floor maximum-security wing of the jail.

They discovered the outside of a window had been moved about 4-inches.

Officers think the plan may have been to lower strings or ropes to the ground. Where accomplices would attach contra-band.

Investigators also believe detention officers were going to be attacked after the weapons got in.
