Man Caught Smuggling This Inside A Burger By Prison Guards

One woman in an Alabama jail must have been desperate for a fix, but she was in jail. Her devoted husband tried to help her out. He tried to smuggle the drugs to her by stashing them in a cheeseburger. Unfortunately for the couple, he was caught, and now he's headed for jail, too.

Timothy Lee Thompson of Red Bay brought the snack to the jail house and dropped it off for his wife, Ashley Thompson. Mrs. Thompson is in the City Jail, being held on charges of third-degree theft by deception. Thompson himself had also been charged with theft by deception, and was released just two days before.

According to the jail house rules, people are allowed to drop off food to those being held. Mr. Thompson, 31, left a bag with a cheeseburger in it.

“He had asked if he could bring his wife some items and we told him that was allowed, but everything that comes in to go to the prisoners in the jail is checked,” said Chief Jana Jackson. “I don’t know what he was thinking.”

When Police inspected the care package, they found two oxycodone pills buried under the toppings. Thompson didn't wait around to see if they would check for illegal contraband. As soon as police found the illegal prescription medication, they issued a warrant for his arrest.

Police found and arrested Thompson two days later. He's been charged with second-degree promoting prison contraband. He's been released on bond.

Some guards are still baffled by Thompson’s move. Thompson brought his wife a book the day before the cheeseburger incident and should have been tipped off to how thorough searches were. “He saw me going through the book, page-by-page, and I told him why — it was to check and make sure nothing was inside that could be slipped to the inmate,” said one guard. “The next day, he showed up with a sack of food. That’s when we found the pills.”

Some people would do anything for love.
