Rectum? Damn near killed him

I’d say he was trying to enlarge the circle of his friends.

Gavin Stanger, 24, of East Wenatchee, Washington smuggled the following into jail, in his rectum, all at once: a green cigarette lighter, cigarette rolling papers, a golf-ball size bag of tobacco, a bottle of tattoo ink, eight tattoo needles, a one-inch-long smoking pipe and a small bag of suspected marijuana. From Wenatchee World:

(Jail administrator Phil Stanley) said no contraband was found on a pat-down search or on a later strip search.
About 90 minutes later, with Stanger in a single holding jail, a jailer found a plastic bag and duct tape floating in the cell’s toilet. After being questioned by jailers, Stanger surrendered the contraband.
