BEAUMONT, TX (KXAN) – A federal inmate was caught sneaking back into a Beaumont prison with a duffle bag full of snacks, fruit, liquor and tobacco Thursday.

The U.S. Marshals and Jefferson County Sheriff’s office were acting on a tip when they set up a surveillance operation on private property near the prison. Officers watched as a vehicle drove onto the land and dropped off a large duffle bag. Then, about two hours later, they watched an inmate from The Federal Correctional Complex escaped from the prison and grabbed the duffle.

The deputies and marshals descended on the inmate and confiscated the bag. Inside they found three bottles of brandy, a bottle of whiskey, bags of Bugler tobacco, packaged snacks and a large amount of home cooked food.

Police detained the haul with photos showing the contraband included trail mix, home-cooked chicken, sausage, green beans, rice and pico de gallo.

The inmate, identified as 25-year-old Joshua Hansen of Dallas, was booked into jail on a charge of escape and possession of marijuana. He was originally serving prison time for drug charges.
