Going to jail’s no fun because of all the things you have to leave behind.
A 29-year-old tattoo artist in Lake County California got around that by shoving a cell phone, MP3 player, headphones, marijuana, tobacco and $140 in cash in his rectum, according to an article on The Smoking Gun.
Corrections officers were led to Earl Lee Vogt’s cell by the smell of burning marijuana, which is still illegal in California jails.
Vogt, sentenced on a narcotics violation, appeared to be in discomfort when strip searched, but that may be because he’d just realized he’d forgotten to pack his flat screen.
Vogt denied being in pain but did admit, “My [bleep] is bleeding.”
Apparently, this sort of behavior is so common jail workers call it “keystering.” I thought it was spelled “keistering” but thankfully I’m no expert on this subject.
