Prisoners try to escape Brazilian prison in trash bags

CURITIBA, Brazil — Two inmates tried to escape from a Brazilian prison by disguising themselves as bags of garbage to be put out by COs.

Sidney da Cruz, 24, and Carlos Pereira, 18, hoped to be picked up and thrown outside by staff at the Delegacia de Furtos jail in Curitiba, southern Brazil.

But an officer foiled the plot after noticing that the plastic bags were 'shaking', according to Brazil's Terra website. The lags' bid for freedom began on Tuesday after lunch, when leftover food and plastic plates are collected in rubbish sacks.
