Sirius gets a wand during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, but how is this possible since Sirius is an escaped convict from Azkaban? The same goes for all the escaped Death Eaters that broke out of Azkaban. Plus how did Voldemort get his wand back in Goblet of Fire. Didn't the wand get lost in the rubble in the Potter's house?

    Note the total absence of security at Ollivander's shop. There are wands in the windows, on display shelves and right by the doors.

    Wild that an expulsion from a school can result in wand destruction, but a sentence to Azkaban by the Wizengamot results in confiscation, just in case they're innocent.

    I always thought they bought them on the Black-Arts Market.
