Brazil Authorities Investigate How Inmate Got $173G, Guns, TV in Cell
SAO PAULO, Brazil — The luxurious lifestyle of a convict in northeastern Brazil has come to an abrupt end after police confiscated a plasma TV set, gym equipment, two pistols and cash worth $173,000 from his cell, officials said Tuesday.
Bahia's Prison Affairs Department head Jose Francisco Leite said police raided the cell Monday in a statewide crackdown on drug trafficking.
He said Tuesday authorities have ordered an investigation of how of Genilson Lins da Silva got $173,000, two .38-caliber pistols and other amenities into his cell at the Bahia's Lemos Brito Penitentiary. Silva is serving 28 years for robbery and murder and was transferred to another prison.
Leite says Silva "led a posh prison life in his cell, which he occupied all by himself.""Like" us on facebook! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Offic...93147194083228

Very similar to a book called "Marching powder" by Rusty YOUNG about the lifstyles led by crooks on the inside of a south american prison. Money certainly talks. Interesting read if you are at all curious"Contrary to popular belief, you will not rise to the occasion, but will fall to the level of your training"

Sounds like Pablo Escobar when he built his own "prison" and paid his own "guards."That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.

I can see hiding the guns... But how the hell do you hide a plasma tv in a jail cell?

well the guy probably didnt have to hide anything. I am sure he had most of the place paid off. It was probably the one guy he didnt bribe that blew the whistle on him.
