Houston Chronicle: 'Obese Houston inmate found with gun after 5 searches'

Why, you may reasonably ask, would a copyright blog pass along such a story? Read on:

An obese Harris County jail inmate turned over a pistol that had been hidden in the folds of his skin after he went through at least five searches upon his arrest and was booked into two different local lockups, authorities said.

George Vera, 25, is charged with possession of a firearm in a correctional facility. He also is charged with possessing or selling unlabeled recordings, the original reason for his arrest.

Authorities said he was caught with 439 compact disc recordings which did not have labels noting manufacturers or distributors.

(emphasis mine. And likely unnecessary.) Read the whole thing to get all the details, including the rather disturbing mug-shot.

(Thanks to reader CDT (no, not this CDT) for the tip.)


  1. Ack.. Now you have me wondering just where did they find the 439 CD's?

    Then again, maybe its somewhere I just dont want to know ( )

  2. What's disturbing about the mug shot?
