Prisoner hides cell phone in butt

During a routine search, the cell phone started ringing, alerting guards to the device

SRI LANKA — A 58-year-old Sri Lankan convict who was trying to hide a cell phone during a search was caught when the device started ringing.

The prisoner, 58, was admitted to the hospital where doctors removed the phone and an accompanying handset from his rectum.

"Unfortunately for him, the phone rang at the wrong time and guards knew he had a phone at the wrong end," a hospital official told Agence French Presse.

The man was hospitalized for two days, discharged and sent back to prison.
