The Case of the Contraband Crotch
Andrea Amanatides is a 38-year-old woman in Albany, New York, scheduled to begin a six-month prison stint for a probation violation. She is also one of the worst prison smugglers in the history of crime.
While waiting in a holding cell in an Albany County Jail, and in full view of a surveillance camera, Amanatides had an accident. In an effort to make her prison time more enjoyable, she had hidden a condom inside her “hoo-ha” that included several bags of heroin, as well as more than 250 prescription pills ranging from Adderall and Valium to Lyrica and Ambien.
Unfortunately, the condom she selected must have been a Rough Rider from the corner store, because it broke and drugs poured all over the cell floor. Amanatides tried to kick the pills under a bench, as if they would disappear under the only piece of furniture in the room, but it didn’t work. She has now been charged with five misdemeanors for criminal drug possession and one felony involving prison contraband.
It looks like Amanatides will be spending more than six months in jail now. And even though she won’t have her precious drugs to keep her company, I’m sure she can replace them once she’s behind bars.
Congratulations, Andrea, on being my dumbass of the week!
