Man hides phone in jail in prosthetic leg
UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) - April 23, 2012 (WPVI) -- A county detective says a man serving six months in a southwestern Pennsylvania county jail illegally hid a cell phone and charger in his prosthetic leg.
Twenty-seven-year-old Christopher Greer, of Uniontown, faces a preliminary hearing May 22 on the contraband charge filed last week by a Fayette County detective.
The detective says the phone was found during a search of Greer's cell on Feb. 23.
Greer was sentenced to jail after he was convicted in March of driving with a suspended license. Inmates are not allowed to bring their own phones into the jail.
Greer's public defender did not immediately return a call for comment Monday.
The Fayette County Jail Prison is about 40 miles south of Pittsburgh.
