This story could go into the “San Diego’s Dumbest Criminals” file. A Lakeside man goes to visit his son in a Colorado prison and ends up behind bars himself on suspicion of smuggling drugs.

Convicted felon Donald Curtis, 56, was arrested by FBI agents Friday at a Florence, Colo. federal lockup after plotting over a monitored phone with his imprisoned son for two months.

According to an FBI agent’s report, Denney planned to smuggle a golf ball-sized chunk of black tar heroin he had wrapped in plastic and hid in his rectum.

Authorities say Denney was going to transfer the drugs by giving his 29-year-old son, who has the same first name, a mouth-to-mouth kiss during a visit.

“I felt so disgusted and would never imagine taking something out of my butt and putting it in my mouth in the first place, but to kiss my own child — it wouldn’t happen,” neighbor Mike V. said.
