This is extremely unsettling.
A handgun was found in between a prisoner’s buttocks during a cavity search. Daily Mail reports:
Darquan R. Lee, 21, was being booked into Cumberland County Jail in Bridgeton, New Jersey, on a contempt of court warrant when the weapon was discovered.
When he arrived at a police station he asked to use the bathroom, but when officers said he would be patted down and searched beforehand, he quickly decided he didn’t need to go.
His response led authorities to speculate that he was hiding something in his “anal cavity.”
Police proceeded to conduct a cavity search and found a gun “shoved” between his buttocks. The weapon was reportedly stolen and now, Lee is being charged with possession of a weapon.
Lee is currently being held without bail.
