The Curry County Sheriff’s Department conducted a shakedown Monday at the Curry County Adult Detention Center.

The search of inmates, cells and the facility started early in the morning and continued throughout the day, Curry County Undersheriff Wesley Waller said. He said Monday night he was waiting for reports from investigators and details about what was found should be available in the morning.

Detention center interim administrator Tori Sandoval could not be reached for comment.

Sandoval replaced Keith Norwood, who resigned Tuesday as jail administrator.
