Inmates steal computer mice to charge their cell phones

In a Scottish prison computer mice have been going missing from the prison's classrooms with no indication as to where they went. They eventually figured out that inmates were using them to charge their illegally smuggled cell phones. Prisoners figured that they can use the mouse's USB cable to plug it in the PlayStation gaming console at the prison, enabling them to charge their phones.

It sounds strange to hear about a PlayStation console at a prison, but noew prison officials have a strict rule no one is allowed to leave the classrooms unless every mouse is handed back.

What's next, maybe keyboards?

These guys are prisoners, and they get mad when they break the rules and steal things?

Smart inmates are smart. Unfortunately they weren't smart enough to not get caught in the first place.

You would think that these guys would just smuggle in a mini usb....or use the cord FOR the PS3 (meant to charge controllers) to charge their phones.
