    Default Only in Houston

    So, for a while now, I've been thinking about starting this thread, patterned after Chef's Only in South Florida thread. Just now, The Wife sent me a link to a story that I think is the perfect way to start this off.

    So...here we go!

    HPD: Inmate Hides Gun In Fat Layers
    By Elizabeth Scarborough

    POSTED: Thursday, August 6, 2009
    UPDATED: 8:06 am CDT August 6, 2009

    HOUSTON -- A nearly 600-pound man was able to hide a weapon for more than a day while he was in custody, police told KPRC Local 2 Wednesday.

    "Obviously the system broke down," former Harris County Detention Major Mark Kellar said. "The procedures didn't work as they were designed to work."

    Houston police said George Vera, 25, was arrested Aug. 2 and taken to the city jail. He spent a day there before being transferred to the Harris County Jail. After being there for 14 hours, going through intake procedures, he was taken to the showers, the final step before going to his cell. There, Vera told police he had a 9mm handgun on him, along with 2 clips.

    "If a person has a weapon, narcotics, anything of danger, it should have been found before he winds up in the county jail," said Kellar.

    Kellar said Vera should have been searched at least three times before getting to the jail.

    Vera weighs nearly 600 pounds and the gun was allegedly hidden between fat layers.

    Houston Police Officers Union President Gary Blankinship said cadets are trained how to search morbidly obese people.

    "We teach officers to lift up and look under," Blankinship said. "The officer may not have arrested anyone this big before."

    Blankenship said that system clearly does not always work.

    "They can be so big, basically short of strip searching or searching cavities, they could miss something like this," said Blankinship.

    The Houston Police Department and Harris County Sheriff's Office are doing internal investigations to figure out how this could have happened.

    Blankinship said they should also change the way officers are trained to search morbidly obese inmates, maybe adding hand-held metal detectors.

    Vera has been released from jail on bond.

    I never heard this one.

    This is classic. I'm sure someone shoved a finger up his ass to make sure there wasn't any drugs in there but they didn't think he could have a pistol under his left tit.

    This made me shudder. There is not enough money in the world to make me lift and search under other people's fat rolls.

    Man Accused Of Photography Under Skirt

    POSTED: Thursday, August 6, 2009
    UPDATED: 7:44 am CDT August 6, 2009

    HOUSTON -- A Houston man has been charged with "improper photography" for allegedly using his camera phone to take pictures up a legal assistant's skirt at the Harris County criminal courthouse while pretending to tie his shoelaces.

    Bryant Gerley Munoz was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly took several pictures under the skirt of a 29-year-old legal assistant.

    Constable Lt. Bill Ruland said Munoz was at the courthouse on a misdemeanor drug charge.

    Ruland said Munoz confessed after being taken into custody.

    Munoz has been charged with a state jail felony, which carries a maximum sentence of two years behind bars.

    I think that is a common way for really fat people top steal or smuggle things. I remember seeing one of those reality shows that have people caught on camera stealing things. There was this one fat lady that tucked a dvd player under one of her FFF flapjacks.

    That is really common...it's called "up skirting" a local pedaphile was caught doing it to a young girl in a local store here last year



    Weird ness isn't localized in FLorida or Texas.....I can't find the news story, but a Norwalk OH man..(remember that as the same place the guy boinked a patio table?)

    well anyway....this guy was picked up for drug charges and he had stored the dope THE SIZE OF A TENNIS BALL, in a balloon, in a sock and inside a baggy UP HIS RECTUM where it was impacted ... yikes

    ...he was taken to the hospital after he was found to be trying to remove the drugs from his rectum, with a comb and a pencil....they flushed it out of him three enemas later.

    sheesh, it's their own damn stupidity that causes people to turn to a life of crime...what else are those dumbasses going to do for a buck?

    HOUSTON -- A nearly 600-pound man was able to hide a weapon for more than a day while he was in custody, police told KPRC Local 2 Wednesday.

    "Obviously the system broke down," former Harris County Detention Major Mark Kellar said. "The procedures didn't work as they were designed to work."

After being there for 14 hours, going through intake procedures, he was taken to the showers, the final step before going to his cell. There, Vera told police he had a 9mm handgun on him, along with 2 clips.
    "If a person has a weapon, narcotics, anything of danger, it should have been found before he winds up in the county jail," said Kellar.

    Kellar said Vera should have been searched at least three times before getting to the jail.

    The funniest thing.....or scariest depending on your POV....is that that they never would've known about the gun had the suspect not told them.
