Rumors began to swirl after a report popped up last week with the claims.

Rumors began to swirl last week after it was reported that six incarcerated individuals living in proximity to the disgraced reality star were busted with contraband and were preparing for harsh punishments from the warden.

"They got a new warden at Seagoville, and she's been posting notices about contraband saying that if contraband is found in one cell in one unit, the whole unit will get shut down and lose privileges," The Sun reported last week. “Josh's building got shook down this week and they found a bunch of contraband. I know they found a bunch of alcohol.”

However, our source said that's not true.

However, RadarOnline.com is told, "There hasn't been a unit shakedown in a while."

RadarOnline.com is told the new warden did post notices with contraband warnings, but that wasn't because of any incident. The prison source shared that the warden was "reiterating BOP's commitment" and "reminding them there is zero toleration," with the insider adding, "There hasn't been a unit shakedown in a while."

We're also told that contraband intake at FCI Seagoville has "gone down since last year."

As far as the "harsh punishment" those with the reported contraband were expecting, RadarOnline.com can reveal that the prison "would never restrict a unit from recreation time, food," or any other basic necessity for their health and well-being.

The insider told us point-blank: "There's been no mass shakedown" and "no alcohol has been found in any unit" recently.

The prison source said Duggar's unit is one of the better ones at the Texas facility. We're told the convicted sex pest is "not facing any punishment" and his living conditions "have not changed" over any alleged raid.

"There's not a lot of contraband" at FCI Seagoville, the well-connected source shared while reiterating there is zero truth to the report published just days before Duggar's 36th birthday.
