Police in New Jersey pulled over a gang member on traffic warrants, and got a whole lot more than they bargained for. Aside from disobeying the rules of the road, the suspect also had a record number of bags of heroin stuffed in his anus.
Rasoul Speight, of New York, was pulled over during a routine traffic stop on New Jersey's Palisades Interstate Parkway, yesterday. The 32-year-old and his passenger, Gary Skylak, 26, were rolling in a 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer, and agreed to have the vehicle searched after cops smelled marijuana inside the car.
Police recovered “nothing of evidentiary value” but still took the men into custody on outstanding traffic warrants.
According to New Jersey Lt. Michael Coppola, records revealed that Speight was a member of the Bloods gang, and while getting processed into the facility, he was found to have stuffed 100 bags of drugs in his buttocks. Cops also found a spoon, and syringe, --both covered with drug residue-- inside the jacket pocket Speight's cohort.
Both he and Skylak were charged with possession with an intent to sell, and tampering with evidence. Skylak faces additional charges of possessing a syringe, and drug paraphernalia.
The men were taken to Bergen County Jail, and remain in custody.
