LOS ANGELES, CA - JULY 14: Razor wire is seen on the Metropolitan Detention Center prison as mass arrests by federal immigration authorities, as ordered by the Trump administration, were supposed to begin in major cities across the nation on July 14, 2019 in Los Angeles, California. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement was expected to be target hundreds of Angelenos for deportation, plus family members and others they encounter and suspect of being undocumented. The city of Los Angeles declared itself a sanctuary city to reflect its policy since the 1970s of not allowing police to help immigration officials because the city wants its immigrant populations to not be afraid to cooperate with police or call in crimes and emergencies. Elected officials and activists have continued to lash out against the raids. (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)
A Brazilian gang leader named Clauvino da Silva recently tried to break out of the city’s most notorious prison… And FAILED.
But it’s the way he tried to break out that is the craziest part. Silva disguised himself as his 19-year-old daughter and tried to leave the jail to head home after visiting hours when he was caught.
What’s even crazier… he was planning to leave his daughter, Ana Gabriele Leandro da Silva, in the prison. She will now be charged with abetting prison escape, a crime punishable with up to two years in prison.
