A man had a loaded firearm hidden inside his rectum when he was booked into an Oklahoma jail this weekend, police report.
Arrested on a minor charge Sunday morning, Mark Gregory Valadez was transported to an Oklahoma City jail, where he was only subjected to a pat-down search (and not made to go through a metal detector).
As a result of the lax screening, investigators allege, Valadez, 33, got into the lockup with a Derringer pistol inside his body cavity. The concealed weapon, which contained a single round, is seen in an Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office evidence photo.
Investigators learned that Valadez, who lives in Wichita, Kansas, was carrying after he blabbed to other inmates that he had smuggled a weapon into the jail.
