Who would have tried to smuggle samosas into a prison cell by shoving it up your bum?
Does the simple trick make snacks more appetizing?
One guy just did the unthinkable when he realized how difficult it was to get snacks in prison but he wanted to nibble on samosas in his cell.
While recounting the shocking discovery, Inspector Maj Ahir from West Midlands Police’s Criminal Justice Department said: “We’ve had a few odd incidents. One that sticks in my mind was a man found with a samosa secreted between his buttocks during a search.
“He said he wanted to sneak it into the cell as a snack as he’d didn’t think the food was up to much. He’d obviously not read our positive Trip Advisor reviews!”
Inspector Ahir also shared other bizarre encounters with detainees.
“A man was booked in with us in Oldbury just after midnight on 6 December for an assault. He was in his 40s but hadn’t ever been arrested before,” he said.
He continued: “He had type 2 diabetes so he was checked over by the custody nurse, we got his meds from home and took his bloods through the night. He also saw an alcohol referral worker as he’d had a drink for the first time in six years, which he believes led to the arrest.
“A few days later he turned up at the Oldbury block with chocolates to say thanks for the care he received from the staff. It was a lovely gesture.”
He added: “It’s been a year like no other for us with significant demand, processing an average of 126 detainees a day, while adhering to Covid-19 protocols.
“The team have done brilliantly, though, and our waiting times to book people into custody are the lowest nationally.”
