Police in Georgia believe that despite multiple searches after a traffic violation, a suspect managed to sneak a 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. He was initially arrested because police allegedly found drugs and related paraphernalia during the traffic stop.
Guards were frist alerted by sleepless inmates who complained of loud farting coming from the suspects cell. Jailhouse guards discovered the handgun in the toilet after other inmates reported Ward grunting and groaning for almost an hour while on the toilet.
Ward will be taken to OMH for possible injuries that may have occurred to Ward’s rectum where it is believed Ward may have concealed the .38 caliber, six inch barrel revolver. The gun was empty. However, the gun was test fired by the OCSO CSI to determine its functionality and it was in operational condition. The gun was immediately issued to a new DOC graduate who promised to clean it and buy a new holster.
Ward is wanted in Georgia for prior charges including murder, armed robbery, driving without a license, impaired diving, obstructing a police officer, offering a false report to a police officer, and shoplifting a refrigerator by hiding it in his rectum.
