A convicted murderer and child molester tried to break out of a maximum security prison in San Pedro Sula, Wednesday disguised as a woman.
Francisco Herrera Argueta, dressed as a lady, attempted to break out of the maximum security jail in San Pedro Sula, Honduras with a visitor’s forgotten identity card.
He did manage to pass through several security filters on his way to the exit, but he only got as far as the checkout point before prison security caught him out after guards noticed his funny gait and unmistakable man’s voice
55-year-old Argueta, dressed as a lady with a long skirt, blonde wig and fake breasts as he attempted to leave the maximum security jail along with other inmates’ families following visiting hours.
The prisoner had planned to pretend he was a female visitor to the jail, Jacinta Elvira Araujo, who had left her identity card with guards as she entered the prison in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, on Sunday afternoon.

But despite his best efforts to look like a woman complete with blusher and pink painted nails, Argueta apparently forgot to speak like one when it was his turn to pick up the identity card at the jail exit so he could leave.
Police spokesman Bayron Sauceda said officers had already noticed the woman’s ‘funny walk’ as Argueta struggled to walk on high heels, but he had still managed to pass through several security filters on his way to the exit.
Then when a guard at the prison gate asked the apparent visitor for her identity card number she ‘spoke with a hoarse, male voice.’
