Man Charged With Breaking Into Prison

A man in Bermuda was arrested this week when he attempted to break certain items in to prison.

Tyevin Bean attempted to sneak contrband into the Westgate Correctional Facility when he was discovered by prison personnel.

The 22-year-old was already on probation at the time of his arrest, and he appeared in Magistrates’ Court on Thursday to answer for his crime.

Bean wasn’t attempting to become a permanent resident of the prison. Instead, he was attempting to smuggle in various items, which included cell phones and other pieces of contraband.

According to the police report, the parole was attempting to sneak various items into the prison via a single package. The items he was holding at the time of his arrest included five BlackBerry cell phones, a bottle of white rum, three bottles of dark rum, six packages of Sampson tobacco, one package of loose tobacco, two lighters, two packs of Rizla papers, a pocket knife, two packages of protein powder, and three packages of candies

The prison is a high-security facility, which made the chances of success for the smuggling very low.

Mr. Bean is set to appear in court for trial on June 6. Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner remanded the young man into custody.

Sadly, this is not the first time we have reported on someone attempting to sneak into prison, and it probably won’t be the last time.

Earlier today, I reported on three men who locked a homeowner in his own gun closet. The dumbest criminal competition for 2013 sure is heating up. Do you think Tyevin Bean is this years dumbest criminal?
