‘Concealed Weapon’ Takes on New Meaning

. Sunday, August 9


Meet George Vera. This 25 year old, 500 pound Texan is so overweight that he was able to effectively hide a 9mm pistol in his rolls of fat.

He hid the 9mm, in fact, through a strip search and processing at his arrest, again at the city jail and yet again Harris County Jail where he was held on the charge of illegal sales of copied CDs. The officers never found that gun.

Finally, while taking a shower, Vera admitted having the gun. Then he was charged with the possession of a firearm in a correctional facility.

The gun was not loaded.
