Italian Mafia's Secret Cell Phone Gun

December 3, 2008

Italian police raided an Italian mafia gang and uncovered a devilishly clever mobile device in so doing. It’s a cell phone which houses 4 .22 caliber bullets and fires them at the press of a button.

The “phone” was fully loaded and ready to make mobile mischief when the Italian police (called Carabinieri) found it in the raid.  Also confiscated were two normal, non-cell phone hand guns, a whole mess of drugs, and a big pile of cash. 

One man was arrested during the raid, but predictably, most of the suspected gang members escaped.
