BRAZILIAN DRUG LORD ATTEMPTS PRISON ESCAPE DISGUISED AS HIS DAUGHTER
His name is Clauvino da Silva and he is an imprisoned drug lord in Brazil. And yes, that is the perfect drug lord’s name, isn’t it? Anyway, da Silva doesn’t like being in prison. A normal prison escape seemed impossible, so the Brazilian drug lord turned to his teenage daughter for help. But what can a teenaged girl do to get her father out of prison? Well, it’s not the normal thing, that’s for sure. The imprisoned criminal tried to get out of prison disguised as his daughter. But as you can imagine, that didn’t work out too well.
GUARDS AT PRISON ENTRANCE FORCED DA SILVA TO STRIP IN FRONT OF CAMERAS, OOPS
This past weekend, prison guards at the prison entrance were seriously suspicious when da Silva showed up and asked for the return of “his” ID card before leaving. But it was his daughter’s ID that she dropped off when she went to visit him at the prison. Well, you can look at that picture yourself and understand why the guards had some reservations. So they asked the disguised drug lord to strip in front of the cameras. As you can imagine, the bad disguise didn’t have enough layers to pass muster.
DAUGHTER AND SEVEN OTHERS WHO SMUGGLED IN DISGUISE FACING CHARGES FOR BOTCHED ESCAPE
So what now? Well, the 42-year-old da Silva is now in solitary confinement. Prisons don’t take too well to escape attempts. The drug lord is not likely to face any extra time, though. Why? Because his escape attempt didn’t involve any violence. But unfortunately for his daughter Ana Gabriele Leandro da Silva, officials will charge her with abetting prison escape. That could land her behind bars for up to two years. It seems when you stay behind at a prison, to help your father escape, you are guaranteeing your own capture. But seven other visitors, one of them a pregnant woman, will also face some time as well. They are the ones who smuggled in the wretched disguise.
