Guards Find Cell Phone Inside NC Inmate's Rectum

Associated Press

September 23, 2010

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – North Carolina prison officials said an inmate from Raleigh tried to smuggle a cell phone into prison in his rear end. Court documents obtained by The News & Observer of Raleigh show that 25-year-old Eric Chambers was charged after setting off metal detectors at Central Prison.

Chambers handed over a flattened piece of metal hidden in his mouth, but set off the detectors again. That’s when guards found the red-and-silver “flip-style” cell phone hidden in his rectum.

Chambers was convicted in 2008 of being a habitual felon and sentenced to 10 years in prison. Investigators said he was using the phone as part of a drug-dealing operation.

It could not be immediately determined Wednesday if Chambers has a lawyer.

    Wow.....that's one phone I would never answer. A flip phone? Really.....?

    I like his diversion tactic though by trying to put metal in his mouth.

    One must wonder if the phone was on vibrate......... or......... if he was trying to use the phone's camera / video function to conduct his own colonoscopy?
