Happy holidays are in order for the Logan County Detention Center staff. They recently received six new cell phones in very unique gift packaging. Well, technically the package was delivered for an inmate and the cell phones would have been contraband, but that’s semantics.
While processing Nike shoes delivered for an inmate, officers noticed cutouts in the insole. Upon further inspection, they found six mini cell phones total — three in each shoe. Logan County sheriff Damon Devereaux said he has never seen anything like it before.
“That would be a phone, I would imagine, about the size for any of those American Girl Dolls or dolls of that same size,” he told KFOR. “I wouldn’t even think that was a real phone, but you can certainly call on it.”
The phones were each about 3 inches long — smaller than a standard crayon — so they easily fit in a small space cut out from the insole of the shoe, almost like the sole purpose for a phone that small is to smuggle into places that don’t allow them, like prisons or high school classrooms. (Chicken-Fried News does not condone the smuggling in of tiny, American Doll-size phones in any establishment that prohibits phones of any size.)
