(WKTV) - Marcy Correctional Facility is on lockdown after correction officers say they found nearly 100 hidden weapons in a 24-hour period.

Acting on a tip, officers searched a dormitory Wednesday and found 14 weapons hidden in cube dividers. Further searches netted a total of 90 weapons.

Officials with the New York State Department of Corrections confirm the lockdown, saying it will continue for a few days to allow for a thorough search of the facility.

Lockdown means inmates are confined to their housing units, with the exception of medical needs.
