Cell phones, complete with a charger and data chips, were found in the body cavities of four inmates at a maximum-security prison, and they had used the phones to direct criminal activities on the street, officials said Wednesday.
The discovery was made Tuesday at the prison in Zacatecoluca, in central El Salvador, after suspicious officials took X-rays of the inmates, federal corrections chief Jaime Villanova said.
Capt. Juan Ramon Arevalo, director of the Zacatras prison, said the gang members had introduced the cell phones, wrapped in plastic bags, into their bodies through their anuses. The phones were relatively small — about as long as an adult forefinger.
Authorities also found nine cell phone chips, each slightly larger than a fingernail, and one charger.
“Each one had a cellular with a number of chips,” Arevalo said, adding that one also had hidden a charger in his anal cavity.
Heck, I guess if you’re a man in prison, better a phone going up your ass than something else. Unless, that is, you’d prefer something else.
Whatever blows your butt up.
