CADDO PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

A Shreveport man was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly trying to smuggle a cell phone into Caddo Correctional Center by hiding it in his rectal cavity.

Anthony Alvey, 22, of the 2600 block of Highland Avenue, was transferred from the Madison Detention Center to CCC on April 30, according to the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office. While going through the full body scanner in Booking, an unidentified object was detected on the scan. After a second body scan and a search of his person, Alvey reportedly admitted having a cell phone in his rectum. He was sent to University Health Center where he later removed the phone himself.

Alvey was arrested for bringing contraband into a penal facility.

Prator said cell phones are prohibited at CCC because it prevents non-monitored outside contact with others where evidence could be tampered with or plans for criminal activity could be made or communicated. Prator says it also prevents inmates from using an unmonitored phone to plan an escape, intimidate victims, contact witnesses, or give information on their movements outside the facility.

Full body scanners have been used at CCC since May 2013 when two machines were purchased for $384,000.  All inmates entering the facility are scanned. Deputies have located knives, lighters, drug paraphernalia, and food items with the devices. This is the first cell phone.
