Two Rikers guards busted in a two-year DEA probe for selling drugs and other contraband met their downfall thanks to a jailhouse snitch, the New York Post reports. But from the sound of the two independent operators' methods, it's amazing someone didn't just stumble onto a bag of weed or a scalpel in the course of the day. After arranging payment by money transfers, they allegedly "smuggled the drugs onto Rikers and hid them inside garbage pails, light fixtures and lockers." The world's grimmest Easter egg hunt.
