The corrections staff was able to intercept the illegal transaction and both subjects were charged with felony illegal conveyance.

“This is one of those ‘Here’s your sign’ moments. We have a top of the line camera system, intelligent personnel and sometimes, good snitches but this guy sported his favorite super hero shirt to disguise himself in an attempt to pull this one off. Maybe it gave him confidence, I don’t know,” Jones said.
