Posted: Updated:
Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator says an inmate moved from another jail is accused of trying to smuggle a cellphone in a bodily cavity.

Prator said in a news release Wednesday that a body scan of an inmate transferred April 30 from Madison Parish showed a small object that deputies couldn't find despite a second body scan and a search. He says 22-year-old Anthony Alvey, of Shreveport, eventually told deputies that he had a phone in his rectum. He was sent to University Health Center, where Prator says Alvey removed the phone.

Prator says Alvey was booked with bringing contraband into a penal facility.

It was not clear whether Alvey has an attorney and it was not immediately known
