In the summer of 1947, following an unintentional search, he was caught by the British while in his pocket was “Hama’as” newspaper and he was sentenced to prison. He began serving time in a Jerusalem prison. Afterwards, all Jewish prisoners were moved from the Jerusalem prison to Atlit detention camp. He and his friend, Yoram Sion, began planning their escape.

After a while, the British released all prisoners sentenced to up to five years in prison, and Shmuel was set free.
