Bronx Man Stuffs 17 Bags of Cocaine Up His Butt

April 1, 2013 | Andy Cush

Adding to New York’s long, rich history of people keeping drugs hidden in strange, uncomfortable places, a man at Lincoln Hospital’s psych ward in the Bronx was found with no less than 17 bags of white powder stuffed up his ass. The substance, believed to be cocaine, was found after the patient received an injection to the behind and little baggies began streaming out.

“Two bags of the drugs fell down,” said a source at the hospital. “Then he got a little more aggressive and defensive.”

Fifteen more bags would follow. Unsurprisingly, the source said everyone at the hospital was “in shock” at the display.
