Inmate Busted After Posting TikToks Showing Life In Prison

These are the videos an inmate has been taking from inside prison before they were caught:


The unidentified detainee was posting clips on to social media platform TikTok but prison staff finally discovered them.

The inmate has now been moved to a high-security prison after 17 mobile phones and 13 SIM cards were found.


He had been incarcerated at the Dalton Crespo Prison, in Campos dos Goytacazes, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he shared clips of his routine including him making a toasted sandwich.

On that specific clip, he had written: "bom dia pra todos que deus proteja Nosso dia todo Mal," which, if Google Translate is anything to go by, means: "good morning to all God protect Our day Evil."

After discovering the clips on TikTok, the officials at the Secretary of State for Penitentiary Administration (SEAP) ordered a search of the prisoner's cell where they discovered 17 mobile phones, 13 sim cards and a small amount of drugs.


In one of the inmate's most popular videos, which has over 131,000 views, he can be seen making a sandwich on a hot plate.

The profile, which has 4,202 followers and more than 14,000 likes, also has footage showing the prisoners playing football, cleaning inside the unit and showing off some of the contraband items.

Since the discovery, the inmate has been transferred to high security prison Laércio da Costa Pellegrino.

Discussing the matter, Fernando Veloso, the secretary of penitentiary administration of Rio, said: "We have already started an investigation procedure with the Internal Affairs, which will investigate the occurrence with the maximum rigor that the law allows.

"It is intolerable that prisoners continue to have access to the outside world.

"We will intensify the actions of repression and punish when we discover those involved in the entry of these materials that are not allowed in the unit."

This isn't a first either because back in 2019, convicted drug dealer Sam Walker managed to maintain several social media accounts, including a YouTube and Twitter profile, from within a jail in Leeds.


His Twitter account had more than 19,000 followers - although the description says that it is an 'unofficial account being run until Sam's home' - and links to a YouTube channel on which several videos were posted from within the jail.
