Bristol crim caught with mobile up jacksie

Eight weeks' extra porridge for prison smuggle fail

Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

A 22-year-old Bristol master criminal will spend eight weeks in prison for attempting to smuggle a mobile phone into prison by "concealing it internally", as the Bristol Evening Post delicately puts it.

Aaron Walker had been ordered back to Horfield Prison on 30 April for breaching the licence for a previous unnamed offence. When screws subjected him to a strip search and once-over with a metal detector, the game was up. The paper reports: "When taken to a cubicle he produced a mobile phone wrapped in tissue that he had hidden in his rectum."

Walker was subsequently bailed on the mobile phone offence, but managed to get himself arrested for "being carried in a stolen vehicle". On 28 May he was in a swiped Honda Civic, "which hit a lamp-post in Southville".

Police found his fingerprints in the vehicle, which led to a swift cuffing.

The perp yesterday pleaded guilty in Bristol Magistrates' Court to "taking a prohibited item into prison" and the stolen car escapade. Presiding magistrate Gillian Clark "ordered him to serve a total of eight weeks extra in jail on top of the outstanding three-month sentence he was on licence for". ®
