When it comes to the methods inmates use to smuggle weed into prisons, there never seems to be a lack of ingenuity from one tactic to the next to show the free world just how determined some convicts are to get stoned. Throughout the years, we have witnessed many impressive schemes, but admittedly, this is the first time we have heard of a prisoner using his dead grandmother as a front to sneak in illegal contraband.
Georgia police say that after 74-year-old Emma Mae Faulk died last Sunday, her two grandsons, Nekoase Antwan Vinson and Henry Ison Rouse, who are currently doing time at the Bibb County Jail, were granted a furlough to attend her showing and funeral. Little did they know, but prior to dropping the boys off at Bentley & Sons Funeral Home to pay their respects, the two had made arrangements with some family members to pack granny’s casket with marijuana and a few other items to perhaps help them through the grieving process once they returned to the pokey.
Apparently, once the men were left alone to bid farewell to their deceased grandmother, they raided her casket and presumably even her corpse for a jail cell care package stashed by relatives. “One of them stayed in there (with the casket) a good amount of time,” Reverend Roland Stroud told The Macon Telegraph.
Unfortunately, the men failed to consider the possibility that officers would search them with furious intent once they arrived back at the jail. Tucked away inside the men’s shorts, jailers discovered a fat sack of weed along with some tobacco and a cellphone.
“We see ingenious ways for the inmates to bring in contraband, but this is a new one on us,” Sheriff David Davis said in a statement. “This incident illustrates the audacity of this generation of jail inmates. To use the body of a deceased grandmother to hide drugs and other contraband is wicked.”
Reports indicate that investigators are actually working to locate the relatives responsible for contributing the smuggle. “We’re tracing the family tree right now,” said Davis.
Incidentally, authorities say they will not pursue charges against the grandmother because it is a dead issue.
