Meet Dustin Burnett of Wichita, Kansas. Dustin is an inmate at the Sedgwick County Jail, and he really didn’t want to be there. So, Dustin used his noodle to escape with a rather unusual method.
Dustin Burnett, 22, was arrested and charged with two counts of official misconduct after officials say he saw inmates break the window and get the contraband but did not stop it or tell anyone. The sheriff says the former detention deputy did not give the whole story when investigators confronted him.
The inmate who broke the window that was used for smuggling contraband into the jail did so by “lighting hemorrhoid cream on fire and melting the plastic in the window.”
Of all the ways to escape a jail, I never heard someone using hemorrhoid creme.
According to the affidavit, it took the inmate approximately three and a half hours to get the hole in the window. The inmate said he came into the cell with a drain pipe from a sink, held the flame to the window, and used the pipe and a food tray to punch a hole through the softened window.
So this guy is smart enough to burn a hole in the jail cell’s window, but not smart enough to not get caught. Kudos, Dustin, kudos!
