An 11-year-old girl was caught trying to smuggle some mobile phones and a gun into the Bellavista prison in Medellin Colombia. The young smuggler and her 25-year-old sister had made it past the first checkpoint, but when the 11 year old tried to sidestep the pat down checkpoint, a guard noticed something irregular under her jumper. The investigation uncovered 72 Mobile phones, 2 Blackberries and a .38 caliber gun. The revolver was taped to her back.

The girl and her sister have said they were visiting the prison to see a relative jailed for illegal gun possession. The two are currently being held pending completion of the investigation.
