Prison Visitor Allegedly Uses Vagina To Smuggle Live Grenade

POSTED: 1:02 pm EDT April 20, 2006

SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador -- A Salvadoran woman is in some trouble after she allegedly tried to smuggle into the country's main prison a military grenade and marijuana hidden in her vagina.

The cylinder was about 10 inches long and 4 inches wide. Officials didn't say what prompted them to check Lidia Alvarado, 44, but authorities have raised the security level at jails across the country, fearing inmates may be planning something.

Alvarado was visiting two inmates serving 25 and 30 years when she was arrested. She now faces drug and weapons charges.

Police who inspected the M-67 grenade said it was in working condition.
I guess life imitates Woody Allen. Remember the movie "Sleeper"? It's been ages since I've seen it, but there's a scene in which Woody and Diane Keaton are sneaking into the operating room disguised as doctors to steal the nose of the leader, the only remaining part of him after he's been killed by a rebel bomb. As they're discussing plans, Keaton suddenly displays a huge, huge handgun. Woody says, "Where have you been hiding it? Don't tell me."
