Man arrested in alleged attempt to smuggle phone to Charles Manson in California prison

A follower of Charles Manson has been arrested for allegedly trying to smuggle a cell phone inside a California prison where the mass murderer is housed.

California Department of Corrections spokeswoman Terry Thornton says 63-year-old Craig Carlisle Hammond was arrested Sunday for investigation of conspiracy, possession of an illegal communication device and attempting to bring a cell phone into a prison. Hammond was taken to jail and is scheduled to be in court next month.

Authorities say Hammond had a wrist watch cell phone that was found by a correctional officer at Corcoran State Prison.

Manson, who is serving a life sentence for orchestrating a series of gruesome murders, has been caught with a smuggled cell phone twice in the past four years.
