03x13 Contraband1

Correctional Officers Baxter Bayley and Erin Sikowitz examining the candy shank found in Stella Carlin's bunk.

Overview Edit

Contraband is any item that is not bought through commissary or provided by the prison.

Information Edit

Many instances of contraband have occurred on Orange is the New Black. For example, in Season One, a mobile phone was used by Blanca Flores to take part in phone sex with her boyfriend, until it was discovered by Piper Chapman. Other examples include drugs, weapons, cigarettes, alcohol, technology, banned make-up, etc.

Season One Edit


Season Two Edit


Season Three Edit

On the search for a cell phone, which is for transferring money to every pantie business wearer, Piper Chapman finds many contraband items, including a candy shiv.

Chapman plants every contraband item she found into inmate Stella Carlin's bunk, a few days prior to her release, thus extending Stella's sentence and gets her sent to Max. Chapman does this for payback because Stella stole all of Chapman's pantie business funds so that she could have a good start once outside of prison.
