A Louisiana man who was subjected to a strip search in a prison facility was found to have been hiding a contraband item, and it was a little close for comfort.

Justin Savoie, 24, pled guilty to felony charges in connection to an arrest from late last year, and received a five year suspended prison sentence because of it. He was also placed on three years probation, but was required to serve 90 days in the Lafourche Parish jail.

Once Savoie was released from custody, all he had to do was not violate his parole.

Police noted suspicious activity at the home of Savoie's female companion, so they investigated. After patting down Savoie, police recovered a concealed handgun, marijuana, and other drug paraphernalia. When officers searched his truck, the found multiple other firearms, as well as homemade suppressors.

Savoie was arrested and brought back to jail. He was subjected to a strip search, which revealed another firearm, hidden in his butt. It was a Titan .25 caliber pistol, which was a total of 4.375" long, and was loaded.

Savoie was free on a $10,600 bond, but he is barred from bars, possessing firearms, as well as the excessive use of alcohol and illegal use of drugs.
