George Vera, 25, who weighs more than 500 pounds, smuggled a 9mm gun into jail in Harris County, Texas, despite being searched four times. Arrested on suspicion of selling bootleg CDs, Vera had the gun under flabs of his own fat. Police searched him at the time of his arrest. He was searched again upon his arrival at city jail, once more when he was transferred to county jail and a final time after he was locked up. Finally, during a shower break, Vera approached a guard and showed him the gun, which was not loaded. (photo: Harris County Sheriff's Department)
