HPD: Inmate Hides Gun In Fat Layers

HOUSTON -- A nearly 600-pound man was able to hide a weapon for more than a day while he was in custody, police told KPRC Local 2 Wednesday.

WATCH IT: Police: Man Hides Gun Between Fat Layers

http://www.click2houston.com/video/20298582/index.html

"Obviously the system broke down," former Harris County Detention Major Mark Kellar said. "The procedures didn't work as they were designed to work."

Houston police said George Vera, 25, was arrested Aug. 2 and taken to the city jail. He spent a day there before being transferred to the Harris County Jail. After being there for 14 hours, going through intake procedures, he was taken to the showers, the final step before going to his cell. There, Vera told police he had a 9mm handgun on him, along with 2 clips.

"If a person has a weapon, narcotics, anything of danger, it should have been found before he winds up in the county jail," said Kellar.

Kellar said Vera should have been searched at least three times before getting to the jail.

Vera weighs nearly 600 pounds and the gun was allegedly hidden between fat layers.

Houston Police Officers Union President Gary Blankinship said cadets are trained how to search morbidly obese people.

"We teach officers to lift up and look under," Blankinship said. "The officer may not have arrested anyone this big before."

Blankenship said that system clearly does not always work.

"They can be so big, basically short of strip searching or searching cavities, they could miss something like this," said Blankinship.

The Houston Police Department and Harris County Sheriff's Office are doing internal investigations to figure out how this could have happened.

Blankinship said they should also change the way officers are trained to search morbidly obese inmates, maybe adding hand-held metal detectors.

Vera has been released from jail on bond.

These judges amaze me sometimes. The dude smuggled a gun and two clips into jail, and they let him go on a bond.

"Honestly your honor.... I had no idea somebody stuck a gun and clips in my fat layers".

Geez.

The cadets probably didn't want to lift and separate.

Betcha' wish your girlfriend was as dirty as my Jeep!

Hang on! This is gunna' be a thrill ride of geriatric proportion!

^^^ I wouldn't want to lift and search. No telling what else he's got tucked in there he forgot about. Food......which would mix with bacteria and ferment......my sister works in an ER and before she got that position she did have to work with people this large and she said giving them baths was the absolute worst experience she had. Many of them never lifted their own fat to clean in between the folds and she said the smell was so bad she had to excuse herself at times so she wouldn't vomit.

Let's just say I wouldn't blame the police for not wanting to do that.

Hes dumb, i think its 500 pounds, if your over 500 pounds and have difficulty ambulating/walking, you don't have to go to jail, you can be on house arrest. I would have used my weight to my advantage and suddenly not have the ability to walk more then 10 feet.
