(Gawker) - Officers in New Jersey who brought a driver into police headquarters over outstanding traffic warrants discovered something even more outstanding when they searched his cavities: 100 bags of heroin "concealed in his anus."
According to The Smoking Gun, that number "appears to be a new record."
Rasoul Speight, 32, and a passenger, Gary Sylak, 26, both from New York, were subjected to a routine traffic stop along the Palisades Interstate Parkway near Alpine.
Upon approaching the car, officers sensed marijuana and requested permission to conduct a vehicle search. Nothing was found, but a background check returned outstanding traffic warrants for both Speight and Sylak.
Speight was also found to be a member of the Bloods street gang.
They were brought to police headquarters where a body cavity search was conducted and the heroin was found inside Speight.
Police also discovered heroin residue inside a syringe and on a spoon tucked inside Sylak's jacket.
The two men were subsequently slapped with several drug-related charges, including possession of heroin with intent to sell and tampering with evidence.
Police say they were headed to upstate New York, where the street value of 100 heroin bags is $2,000.
