(KMOV) -- Illinois’ largest maximum security prison remained on lockdown on Saturday after corrections officers found weapons and alcohol.

Prison officials in Chester, Illinois found more than a dozen crude weapons, gallons of homemade alcohol, and caches of juice to make intoxicants.

Inmates were not allowed to leave their cells unless they had a medical emergency or needed a shower.
