(PHOTOS) Man Hides 59 Heroin Wraps, 6 Cell Phones In ANUS. A man tried to smuggle 59 heroin wraps, two cannabis packages and six mobile phones into prison – up his bum. Anthony McCarten told police he had stolen two TVs from an Asda superstore in Liverpool so that they would arrest him and put him in custody. But suspicious security guards noticed “a very strong smell of cannabis” and packages started falling out of the back of his shorts when he was searched.

They later retrieved 6.3g of heroin, 38g of cannabis resin and 23g of cannabis, plus six mini mobile phones in a package seven inches long. Robert Jones, prosecuting, told Liverpool Crown Court: “He said to the staff he was ‘a dead man’.”

Yet McCarten continually claimed that the drugs were for his own personal use, despite the heroin wraps packaged up in £10 deals, while the total estimated value of the drugs inside prison was up to £1,439. The 49-year-old told police he was a heroin addict and claimed he had tried to sell the TVs to a woman and she paid him in the packages because she didn’t have any cash.McCarten was previously jailed for six weeks for the theft. He eventually admitted three counts of attempting to convey listed articles into prison and the full facts of the prosecution case. Jailing McCarten for four years, Justice Davis said he found his explanation for how he came by the heroin “fanciful”.

 “Heroin in prison is endemic and is a huge problem, both in terms of the effects on the people who take it and the effects on discipline in the prison, because it is hard currency, in every sense of the word,” he added. You also had six phones, which again are hard currency in prison for those who want to continue their criminal operations from their prison cells.”
