County Jail Guard goes to jail for smuggling hacksaw blades in Taco

  • Print

A county jail guard in Texas has been convicted of trying to help an inmate escape by smuggling hacksaw blades inside tacos.  The San Antonio Express-News reports Alfred Casas was sentenced to two years in prison for one count of accepting a bribe, and ordered to serve probation for an additional bribery count.  He was also ordered to pay $15,000 fine.  Prosecutors say Casas made a deal with the inmate to smuggle him hacksaw blades in exchange for two bottles of Xanax pills, provided by the inmate’s girlfriend.  Officials at the Bexar County Jail say the hacksaw blades were discovered in the inmate’s cell, along with bedsheets fashioned into rope, a window bar that had been cut through and a prison jumpsuit dyed to look like street clothes.
