A male inmate hatched a plan in order to escape from prison.

The inmate in Honduras, dressed as a woman complete with fake breasts, a dress, a blond wig, high heel shoes, makeup and nail polish.

He then blended with all visitors and he attempted to walk out together with them after visiting hours.

However, he was busted when he was unable to walk in the high heel shoes he was wearing.

Police in San Pedro Sula, released photos, showing 55-year-old
Francisco Herrera Argueta dressed as a woman as he attempted to break out of a maximum security prison.

Argueta was planning to exit the prison by pretending to be a female who had left her identity card with prison guards.

Argueta, who is a gang leader and was jailed since 2015 for murder and weapons charges, managed to pass several security checkpoints before he was caught.

Police spokesman Bayron Sauceda said that “officers became suspicious by his ‘funny walk’ as Argueta struggled to walk on high heels.

“However, he still managed to pass through several security filters on his way to the exit.

“When a guard at the prison gate asked Argueta for an identity card number he spoke with a hoarse, male voice.”

At this point, he was stopped and he was busted. As a result of his attempted escape, Argueta could be transferred to the El Pozo jail in Santa Barbara, which is known as the most dangerous prison in Honduras.
