Two inmates at a Brazilian prison tried to escape by disguising themselves as bags of garbage. Sidney da Cruz, 24, and Carlos Pereira, 18, hoped to be picked up and thrown outside of the prison by staff at the Delegacia de Furtos jail in Curitiba.

According to Brazil’s Terra website, a prison guard noticed that the plastic bags were “shaking.”

On Tuesday after their lunch period, the two men, who had been jailed for car theft, went into plastic sacks and placed themselves next to other bags lined up for collection.

Prison guard Cleverson Mineiro told Brazil’s Record TV station: ‘I was walking past the sacks of rubbish and I noticed something moving.’

At first I thought there was a rat, but on closer inspection I could see it was two inmates disguised as bags.

Police chief Gerson Alves Machado said: ‘I don’t know how they expected someone to pick them up and carry them away. These are grown men and the bags are made of thin plastic.’

Pereira and da Cruz were arrested and may have their sentences extended.

Authorities are trying to figure out how the prisoners got inside the sacks, which had been tightly tied.
