A convicted drug trafficker who wasn’t due for release until he was 74 years old decided to skip to the head of the line using what he thought to be a clever disguise.

Yahoo! News reports that Clodoaldo Antonio Felipe used a mask and a long dress to pretend he was an elderly woman in order to walk right out from the Coronel Odenir Guimaraes Prison in central Brazil.

Unfortunately for Felipe, officers had not noticed a woman coming into the prison, and wanted to know how she had gotten in without any identification.

They were also suspicious of the woman’s height; after a pat down, they realized the woman was actually a man, and one of their own prisoners.

An investigation is underway to discover how Felipe acquired the mask and clothing.
