    Search Warrant Sought for Suspect's Bowels After He Allegedly Swallowed Evidence

    Police in Massachusetts have sought a search warrant for the bowel movements of a man suspected of swallowing heroin they think he intended to sell.

    The Boston Herald reports that undercover Tewksbury officers pulled over Raul Sanchez-Gomez and Hector Guerrero, suspected of planning to sell heroin. Both were charged with drug trafficking. Two detectives reported that the two suspects had sold them heroin.

    Although a police dog did not find any drugs in their vehicle, officers said Sanchez-Gomez appeared to be choking while trying to swallow drugs.

    Tewksbury Police Chief Timothy Sheehan told The Sun of Lowell that Sanchez-Gomez remains under surveillance in jail and had not passed any drugs as of Monday afternoon.
