Convict swallowed mobile phone and two chargers in crazy attempt to smuggle them into his jail

A convict swallowed a mobile phone and two chargers in a crazy attempt to smuggle them into his jail after day release.

X-rays showed up the objects inside his stomach as he passed through security on his way back into Papuda Prison in Brazil.

The unnamed inmate was taken to hospital for an operation to remove them.

The phone and chargers had been wrapped in plastic.

The prisoner had been allowed out to celebrate Brazil’s National Children’s Day, when youngsters across the country receive gifts and families unite to celebrate childhood.
It is one of the biggest holidays of the year both culturally and commercially.

The discovery was made as he returned to jail yesterday morning.
It is not known why he is in prison.

Jail governors said he would now lose benefits he had accrued and be punished for his new crime.

In August 2000 11 inmates died during a riot at one of the five jails that form the Papuda Prison complex.

Nine suffocated and two were burnt to death during a fire started during the riot.

Another riot in October 2001 left two dead and eleven injured.
