McALESTER — The Oklahoma Department of Corrections internal affairs division is investigating an incident where a gun clip was found inside the walls of the Oklahoma State Penitentiary.

Terry Crenshaw, OSP warden’s assistant, was able to confirm Tuesday that a clip to a gun was found recently in the prison’s C-Unit. “It was in an area (of the prison) not accessible by offenders,” Crenshaw said.

“It’s still under investigation by Oklahoma Department of Corrections internal affairs to determine how it (the gun clip) would have entered the facility,” Crenshaw said.
