Prison sweep nets booze

In another prison sweep, this one in Liberia, police found 109 knife-like objects, homemade weapons, marijuana and gallons of bootlegged alcohol.

Some 120 prison guards and 70 Fuerza Pública officers conducted the sweep at the Centro de Atención Institucional Calle Real.

Police said the type of alcohol the prisoners were making is based on a mixture of bread, fruit and yeast. The mixture converts to an alcoholic drink in three days, they said.

This is a type of drink that is well known in the countryside.
