Michael Leon Ward Smuggled 10-Inch Weapon, Cops Say |
There are some places you should definitely not hide a gun.
Police in North Carolina believe that despite multiple searches after a traffic violation , a suspect managed to sneak a 10-inch gun into a prison last Monday by concealing the weapon in his rectum.
One day later, officers confiscated the .38 revolver from the jail cell of Michael Leon Ward, arrested Jan. 9, a statement from the Onslow County Sheriff's Office explains. They'd performed a strip search on Ward and even required that he "squat and cough" to see if he held any contraband, but nothing turned up, according to MSNBC.
He was initially arrested because police allegedly found drugs and related paraphernalia during the traffic stop.
Jailhouse guards discovered the handgun in the toilet after other inmates reported Ward.
Ward is wanted in Georgia for prior charges including murder, armed robbery, driving without a license, impaired diving, obstructing a police officer, and offering a false report to a police officer.
