"A Charles Manson follower has been arrested for allegedly trying to smuggle a cellphone to the cult leader at Corcoran State Prison.
"Craig Carlisle Hammond, 63, was arrested Sunday on charges of possession of an illegal communication device, attempting to bring a cellphone into a prison and conspiracy, said Terry Thornton, a California Department of Corrections and Rehabiltation spokeswoman.
"Thornton said the device was a wrist watch cellphone and was discovered by guards after Hammond entered an area where the possession of such devices is prohibited.
"Hammond, who goes by the name Gray Wolf given to him by Manson, is a regular visitor to Manson, the mastermind of the one the most notorious killing sprees in U.S. history — the Tate-Bianca murders in Los Angeles."
