Screw ‘smug­gled Maccy Ds’

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A PRISON guard has been nicked for smug­gling McDon­ald’s ham­burg­ers into jail for cons.

Gary West Al­ford, a 23-year-old screw, was ar­rested along with his wife and al­leged ac­com­plice Shan­tica Anasta­cia Al­ford, 31.

Pros­e­cu­tors say an in­mate paid Shan­tica Al­ford £400 through a smart­phone app in ex­change for de­liv­er­ies of McDon­ald’s Quar­ter Pounder ham­burg­ers and chicken wings.

Al­ford is facing 14 charges of un­law­ful com­pen­sa­tion and in­tro­duc­ing contraband into a county de­ten­tion fa­cil­ity, while his wife is facing seven counts.

Po­lice set up a sting op­er­a­tion to catch Al­ford in the act after an in­mate of the Metro West De­ten­tion Cen­ter in Mi­ami gave them a tip-off.

He and his wife were bailed but are both due to ap­pear in court on Novem­ber 26.
