A metal bar sharpened into a dagger was found in an inmate's cell at Geiger Corrections Center this week.
Alan M. Lloyd, 32, is accused of making the weapon out of a metal bar inside his brace, according to court documents. Guards found the item during routine cell checks Tuesday night.
Lloyd appeared in Spokane County Superior Court Thursday on a felony charge of possession of weapon by a prisoner.
His bond was set at $10,000. He'd been at Geiger on $15,000 bond for a residential burglary charge from January.
