Starting capicity for contraband

WENATCHEE, Washington (AP) - Police in Wenatchee are surprised at the amount of contraband an inmate was able to smuggle into the jail rectally. The Wenatchee World said the man internally carried a cigarette lighter, rolling papers, a baggie of tobacco the size of a golf ball, a smaller baggie of marijuana, a 1-inch smoking pipe, a bottle of tattoo ink and eight tattoo needles.

Sgt. John Kruse said the volume of contraband left officers wondering.

Chelan County Regional Justice Center administrator Phil Stanley said the man was booked into jail Wednesday night to serve a disorderly conduct sentence.

Bad judgment call
DAYTONA BEACH, Florida (AP) - Lending one's truck to a stranger to make a beer run is stupid. Compounding that by telling police you were carjacked is stupider. But Daytona Beach police said a 33-year-old man did both recently. He called police May 27 to say possibly armed men ordered him out of the truck while stopped at a light at 4 a.m.

Police reviewed video taken by a camera at the intersection and found nothing. When investigators confronted the alleged victim, he confessed he had lent the truck to a man he'd met while drinking at a motel. He said the man said he wanted to get more beer but never returned.
