Ashley Remkus reports for AL.com, March 29, 2017, that Limestone County, Alabama authorities recovered a stolen gun when it fell from an inmate’s body cavity during a search at the jail.
Jesse O’Neal Roberts, 23, of Elkmont, Alabama, was being booked into the Limestone County Jail on a misdemeanor charge of public intoxication when the gun fell from his body.
Roberts was arrested after midnight when deputies responded to a call about a prowler on Esten Lane. The caller found Roberts around his garage and held the suspect at gunpoint until deputies arrived. Deputy Chad Harbin found Roberts showing signs of impairment, and arrested him for public intoxication.
When they arrived at the jail, corrections officers noticed Roberts appeared to be walking “strangely.”
While being searched, Roberts stumbled and the pistol fell from his body cavity. Sheriff’s spokesman Stephen Young said in a report: “I immediately considered that he defecated on himself before noticing a familiar shape in the form of a pistol in his boxers.”
The unloaded weapon, a Jimenez .380-cailber pistol valued at $100, had been reported stolen from Florence.
In addition to public intoxication, Roberts is charged with first-degree promoting prison contraband, carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and fourth-degree receiving stolen property. Bail is set at $7,250.
These are Jimenez JA-380‘s dimensions and weight:
Seriously, how does a man secrete a 5.3″ x 3.75″ 19-oz. hard object in his anus?
How is that anatomically feasible?
