Man Claims Syringes Found In His Bum Aren't His

The human body is a remarkable piece of kit, even more incredible is its ability to store copious amounts of drugs or drug related items.

Any dealer worth his salt has at one time popped a few baggies up his bum to evade the filth, but when things don't go to plan and police find their secret stash you'd think they'd own up to it, after all they have been caught red handed. Well, maybe not.

One man in Florida was charged by police after he was found with three syringes shoved up his rectum - which he claimed weren't actually his.

Wesley Scott, 40, had been taken into the Pinellas County jail last week and was hiding three pieces of drug paraphernalia in his bum.

According to reports, the ballsy prisoner, who had been taken in after an arrest warrant had been issued for him on drug charges, claimed he had 'found' the syringes.

While in custody Scott was strip-searched and on closer inspection officers made the discovery, even though he had previously told police that he had nothing on him and knew the penalty if he brought anything with him into jail, reports say.

Police have charged Scott with bringing contraband into a county detention facility, as well as charges of possessing drugs with intent to sell and of possession of marijuana.

The county sheriff's office described Scott as having a 'transient' address, and is being held on a $5,000 bond.

It's always a risky move to put anything inside yourself, great or small, and though three syringes may seem fairly dangerous, it is nothing compared to what some people have been inserting into themselves.

Last month the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) released its annual database of emergency room visits where items have had to be surgically removed from patients' orifices.

Among the variety of items were; a crack pipe stuck in someone's penis, a baton in a vagina, and the leg of a telescope shoved up someone's bum.

According to the database, one patient 'pushed drugs up rectum using a lighter' and they were 'able to retrieve the drugs bag yet believe lighter got stuck'. Ouch.

While another person said they 'jumped on bed - toothbrush was on bed and went up patient's rectum' - of course they did.
