A prisoner in New Jersey was caught with a handgun hidden in his “butt cheeks.”
According to reports, 21-year-old Darquan Lee was brought to a Bridgeton, New Jersey, police station on Friday after being arrested on a contempt of court warrant. After arriving at the station, Lee reportedly requested to use the bathroom.
When officers informed him that they would need to pat him down and search the restroom “before and after he used it,” Lee refused and the officers became suspicious that he was hiding contraband in his anal cavity.
The arresting officers informed authorities at the county jail, upon transfer, that they believed Lee might be hiding contraband. During a subsequent strip search, Cumberland County Jail officers discovered a .25 caliber automatic handgun “shoved in his anal cavity” and “between his butt cheeks,” according to a police news release. The gun was allegedly stolen from Alabama.
