BLOOMINGTON — A Normal man in McLean County jail custody is charged with possessing contraband in a penal institution.

Omarr Parks-Bullock, 18, had a broken plastic deodorant container that had been “hand-made” into a knife, prosecutors said.

Police searched his cell and found four other knife weapons, including a sharpened spork eating utensil.

He remains jailed and his bond was set at $100,000, 10% to apply.

Parks-Bullock has been jailed on pending attempted-murder charges related to a shooting at a Normal apartment in March that left one man injured.

An arraignment was set for May 28.
