This cane entered our district courthouse. Our policy is to scan all canes through our metal detector. That is when we noticed the recessed compartment in the handle. The handle of the cane was difficult to remove and had to be turned a certain way to make access. Inside is a glass vial with a cork stopper that can be easily used to conceal drugs or multiple handcuff keys. (We fit almost 9 into it..) This should be watched for at every traffic stop or security checkpoint.
