At the Federal Correctional Institution in Sheridan, Oregon (FCI Sheridan) inmates that come in with a lot of property have it inventoried by bag count. For instance, when I arrived with two bags of legal material and one of them was taken by the U.S. Marshals my property receipt said that I had one bag of legal materials. The receipt was signed "Hiebenthal" so I can only guess that it must have been signed by either Joseph or Ashley Hiebenthal.
So, who cares? I mean, I got what I needed to prove one bag was missing and I eventually recovered that bag from the U.S. Marshals at the courthouse, so what is the problem? The problem I have is that the inventory should have more details to it than just one bag. At least a count as to the number of folders in it. They can't inventory exactly what the legal work is about without reading it, so I would not expect them to even scan the legal material, especially since doing so outside of my presence is illegal, but the property receipt should reflect more than just how many bag there were.
What is funny about this is that the property receipt did not include anything hidden in the legal material that got past them. Stuff like prescription muscle rub cream from another facility and another inmate's identification card.
