Smartphones have been all the rage even with youngsters (or is it actually mostly with youngsters?), but the age barrier seems to have fallen even further as now an 11-year-old girl tried to smuggle 74 cell phones into a jail in Colombia. Oh, 74 cell phones and a gun. The irony of it all is that the girl stated that she wanted to visit a relative put behind bars for gun possession.
The mastermind behind all this however is hardly likely to be the girl herself, but rather her 25 year-old female companion – allegedly the girl's sister. Entering the jail involved passing checkpoints and the two had already made it past the first one, but to their misfortune an officer at the second checkpoint noticed the weird shapes underneath the girl's clothes. That is when “2 BlackBerries, 72 mobile phones of varying quality, and a .38-calibre gun” were found.
Cell phones are some of the most coveted possessions of inmates and while law differs throughout states, it could lead to a prolonged sentence. And in all honesty, a jail with the latest of iPhones and Androids hardly sounds that scary, right?
