Prisoners Plan to Carry Drugs Into Prison In Casket Foiled

  1. Beenthere2Hippie
    GEORGIA - Sheriff’s deputies in Georgia say they foiled a bizarre smuggling scheme in which two jailed inmates used their dead grandmother’s casket to help them smuggle drugs and other contraband back into the jail.

    Jailers escorted Henry Ison Rouse, 27, and Nekoase Antwan Vinson, 30, in handcuffs and leg restraints to the Bentley Brothers funeral home Thursday evening to bid farewell to their grandmother. Emma Mae Faulk of Macon died last Sunday at age 74 and the prisoners were allowed a private viewing. “One of them stayed in there (with the casket) a good amount of time,” the Rev. Roland Stroud told the Macon Telegraph.

    Back at the jail, when guards searched Vinson they found a baggie of marijuana, a packet of tobacco, a lighter and cellphone crammed in a rag tucked in his groin. Sheriff David Davis believes Vinson and Rouse had acquaintances leave the weed and other items in their grandmother’s casket for them to find. “We see ingenious ways for the inmates to bring in contraband,” Davis told the newspaper. “But this is a new one on us.”

    The two were charged with marijuana possession and trying to take contraband into jail. “This incident illustrates the audacity of this generation of jail inmates,” Davis said in a statement. “To use the body of a deceased grandmother to hide drugs and other contraband is wicked.”

    Vinson was behind bars on an undisclosed FBI matter. Rouse was locked up in July on drug and other charges.

    This is terribly disrespectful. Its scum like this that give drug users a bad name. I mean your grandma dies and. Your first thought is to get weed cigarettes and a phone. This is one of the storiespoliticians will view as " how low will the addict go?" And in this case pretty low. This is a little different from the Frank Lucas case. These two should've expected to be searched anyway. Its standard procedure to search inmates after any contact with the outside world.

    you would think that people are so hardpressed for drugs that they seem to do whatever it takes to get.Just this incident alone should show grounds of addiction as a form of disease.I believe the only disease where they lock u up for as long as your life or even put a death sentence on you.Why does the gov"t ignore scientific proof just to keep the jails,prisons full of victimless criminals.It"s sad to see out of 40 countries we rank 36 for destroying peoples lives over A VICTIMLESS CRIME!!I know that W.VA. for every seed they find in ur car they charge it as if its full grown and harvested and guestamate how much those seeds would produced and prosecute him on those stipulations.I know it used to be law but that was in 90"s hopefully they have changed their laws.Truth told if theres so much of an amount or seperated in different containers they seized everything you own,including ur house and property.WHAT A SCAM FOR POLICE TO GET WHAT THEY NEED.
