A man carrying class B drugs and several traffic offences were among the finds of a police operation at HMP Wayland.
Officers carried out a day of action on August 7, searching all visitors attending the prison in Griston for items such as drugs, psychoactive substances and mobile phones.
They were joined by the dog unit, the special constabulary and prison staff, along with the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads Policing Unit, who carried out roadside drug tests and vehicle checks.
One man was found to be in possession of cannabis and was given a cannabis caution, as well as being refused entry to the prison.
Meanwhile officers from the roads policing unit dealt with a number of traffic offences including no tax and no MOT. One vehicle was also seized for having no insurance.
