New Jersey police say a routine traffic stop led to the discovery of a whopping 100 bags of heroin concealed in an unlikely place: the suspect’s anus.
The New Jersey Star-Ledger reported cops pulled over Rasoul Speight, 32, and passenger, Gary Sylak, 26, both from New York Thursday. The car smelled of burnt marijuana, but a search of the vehicle didn’t turn up any drugs.
The two men were taken to police headquarters over outstanding traffic warrants, and it was during an additional search that officers said they found a prodigious amount of heroin on Speight.
“The passenger, also during processing, was found to be in possession of a syringe and spoon, both covered in heroin residue, which were found in the liner of his jacket,” it said.
Speight is listed as a Bloods gang member, police said. Both men were hit with several drug-related charges, including possession of heroin with intent to sell and tampering with evidence.
Police said the men were traveling to upstate New York where the street value of 100 bags of heroin is $2,000.
