Now I have heard some stories of inmates doing some pretty inventive things to get stuff smuggled into jail. But this one is out there! Two inmates in Missouri, cut a hole in the wall, and then did quite a culinary masterpiece. After cutting the hole in the wall, to allow the female in the next cell to slip into the cell of the male inmate, they covered it with toothpaste and pancake mix. I think I’ll file this one away in the WTF file.
Two southeastern Missouri inmates who used pancake batter to cover a hole they cut in a wall between jail cells will at least have a plate the next time they try such a culinary trick.
The Scott City Jail is adding steel plates to its interior walls after the industrious inmates made the hole and hid it with flapjack mix and toothpaste, police said.
Jail staff discovered the opening this weekend, police Chief Don Cobb said. He said inmates removed a block from the wall, allowing a female inmate to slide into the next cell, where a male inmate was housed.
