Woman arrested after entering prison with cellphone in rectum
On Sunday, at around 12:30 p.m., a woman attempted to enter La Reforma prison in San Rafael de Alajuela with a cellphone, its charger, and a hands-free device hidden in her rectum. The woman, who was visiting one of her three incarcerated brothers, was promptly arrested, according to the daily La Nación.
Earlier in the day, another woman who happened to be four months pregnant had tried to enter the same prison with 250 grams of marijuana stowed in her vagina. She too was arrested.
Reynaldo Villalobos, Deputy Director of Social Rehabilitation, told La Nación that this sneaky behavior is not uncommon.
