Police uncover a T-Mobile Sidekick used to conceal a razor
We've heard stories before how criminals use pigeons or even a radio controlled helicopter to smuggle cell phones inside prisons. Now the New York Police Department has uncovered a T-Mobile Sidekick used to conceal a razor blade. The innocent looking Sidekick has a large battery compartment to hide away a sharp blade. In another recent arrest in Harlem, authorities were alerted when they uncovered a cell phone that was converted into a stun gun. Sure we've also heard those myths at how cell phones can kill you – maybe indirectly through radiation or having radio waves bounce in and out of your head. Having a heavy presence of officers in certain areas results in how these makeshift weapons are created. It's only imaginable that guns are going to be kept off the street with the dense presence. Now criminals are relying on alternate means in keeping weapons concealed. So you may want to keep an eye out the next time you head down an alley and see someone with a T-Mobile Sidekick strapped to a holster on their belt.

I actually store some money in my phone so I don't have to carry my wallet. Then again...I'd imagine drug dealers would try to stash some dope in there.
