In late 2001, I saw a message on my desk that said I was to assist in a prisoner transfer to a detainer. Now, a detainer is a court order to pick up a Federal inmate who is wanted on crimes, either state or local, outside of Federal sentencing. In other words, inmate z is facing state or local charges not related to his Federal sentence. inmate z is locked up for PWITD across state lines, but also charged with armed robbery in a local municipality. This means the detaining authority can remove him from Federal custody to face the state or local charges. Really routine, I've done a thousand of these transfers. The Deputy Sheriiff from some county in Alabama arrived, and after looking at his paperwork, checking his badge number, and calling his county with a physical ID (you can't be too careful), I advised him that his weapons had to be locked up in the prison lock box before he could enter the secure facility. No problem, except it was. He drew his cocked and locked .45 Colt. four spare magazines, and placed them in the lock box. He then drew a Berreta 9MM from a shoulder holster, reached over and withdrew 2 more magazines for the Berreta from the off side. He told me "I ain't quite done." He pulled up his right pants leg and offered me a .380 Walther PPK/s and a spare magazine he had in an ankle rig. He then pulled up his left pant leg and withdrew a 4" two edged dagger. As we started into the prison he said "Oh, lord, Ive forgoten one." We went back outside and he dug out a pouch of "Red Man" tobacco, opened it, and produced a .22 over and under derringer. I was about out of patience at this time, and enquired if he had an M-16 in his underwear. He replied "Naw, that's in the trunk."
