A man who tried to smuggle heroin into the US concealed in his rectum was caught by officials, with the help of a drug-sniffing dog. According to Reuters.com, the 35-year-old is being held in the El Paso COunty Jail without bond after being caught with nearly 5 ounces of heroin.
Internal body carriers are not common at land border points. The suspect had been randomly selected for a screening at the El Paso crossing, when the dog helped to sniff out the heroin stashed in the man's rectum. The suspect admitted her had heroin hidden in his body, and he removed an oval-shaped pellet containing the drugs.
