The Texas authorities recently took a Corsicana woman into custody and charged her with drug paraphernalia possession. According to the officers that made the arrest, the odd thing about this case was the way the suspect chose to conceal the drugs she had on her.
Corsicana Woman Made Officers Search Through Her Feces to Recover Drugs
On Wednesday, the Corsicana deputies were summoned to a grocery store after the emergency dispatcher reported that someone might have broken into the store. Upon arriving at the scene, the officers took Shannen Martin into custody, as she fitted the description provided by the store’s owner/
Martin was handcuffed and placed inside the police cruiser. Fearing that the arresting officers might discover her stash of drugs and crack pipe, the woman cooked up a plan that can only be described as being outlandish.
While the officers were still outside the car, the woman defecated in her pants and used her feces in order to conceal for possession. Fortunately, the officers figured out quickly what the woman wanted to do and acted accordingly.
After rummaging through the woman’s feces, the Corsicana authorities discovered approximately 2 grams of cocaine, a crack pipe, and a thin piece of paper that resembled a Valentine Day’s card.
Of course, because no good deed goes unpunished, besides the fact that the Corsicana woman was charged with possessing illegal substances and drug paraphernalia, she was also charged with tampering with evidence.
At this point, the authorities have yet to identify the source of Martin’s drugs, or if she was under the influence at the time, the robbery was committed. Furthermore, the law enforcement officers still need to determine if Martin took anything from the grocery store before the owner notified the authorities.
