Ouch! Man hides 10-inch gun in his rectum to sneak it into jail

Michael Leon Ward2North Carolinians are filled with embarrassment and wonder, trying to figure out how a suspect managed to sneak a 10-inch gun into a prison by concealing a revolver inside his anal cavity.

One day later, officers confiscated the .38 revolver from the jail cell of Michael Leon Ward, a statement from the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office explains. They’d performed a strip search on Ward and even required that he “squat and cough” to see if he held any contraband, but nothing turned up, according to MSNBC.

He was initially arrested because police allegedly found drugs and related paraphernalia during a traffic stop.

Jailhouse guards discovered the handgun in the toilet after other inmates reported Ward.
