KITE HARD ACT TO SWALLOW
A PRISONER caught dumping hundreds of kilograms of coke in front of police has tried to dispose of incriminating evidence in another blatant fashion.
While behind bars in Silverwater jail, the brother of an Olympic athlete was attempting to pass a note to a visitor — a no-no behind bars — when a screw (prison officer) busted him.
Rather than risk having the contents read by unintended recipients, the inmate hastily shoved it in his mouth and ate it — much to the amusement of the crowd visiting that day.
Snitch can’t reveal his identity for legal reasons but can confirm he is in the slammer for drugs, which he tried to get rid of as police closed in on him this year. Prisoners go to creative lengths to conceal notes, dubbed kites, from rolling them up into tiny little balls and shoving them up their noses to swallowing them if they get sprung.
It’s a popular way for inmates to get information from one jail pod to another or to the outside world.
