On Thursday, thermal imaging cameras of the New Folsom State Prison recorded a parolee trying to sneak in.
Marvin Lane Ussery, 48, was arrested on suspicion of being a felon on prison grounds. He had served time at New Folsom Prison (aka California State Prison Sacramento) for robbery. He violated his parole which was issued in 2009.
Ussery’s bicycle was parked near where he hopped the prison fence, prison officials said. Thirty corrections officers combed the prison yard for hidden contraband that the ex-inmate may have been trying to sneak in.
“We don’t have any evidence of this in this case, but we have had incidents where former prisoners have snuck back onto the property to hide backpacks filled with drugs, alcohol or phones,” Quinn said. No contraband has been found yet.
