Suspect Passes Gas so Loudly That Police Locate His Hiding Spot
7/10/2019 1:37 PM - News of the Weird

A sheriff's office in Missouri has taken the unusual step of offering helpful advice to criminals, in a comical post that has already been shared more than 1,000 times.

On social media, the Clay County Missouri Sheriff's Office referenced an unfortunate incident (for the suspect, at least) that took place last weekend. A man was captured by officers after his hiding position was ruined by a thunderous bodily function.

"If you've got a felony warrant for your arrest, the cops are looking for you and you pass gas so loud it gives up your hiding spot, you're definitely having a [poop emoji] day," the department wrote, alongside an image of deputies hunting for a suspect with help from a K-9 unit.

While the police statement did not reveal specifics about the case, Missouri officials confirmed the person was detained on a warrant for possession of a controlled substance.

The arrest was aided by the Liberty Police Department. "We've gotta give props to Liberty PD for using their senses to sniff him out!" the sheriff's office post continued, pun intended.
