Woman from Texas Defecates in Her Pants to Conceal Drugs During Arrest


Police reported that a woman from Texas tried to conceal evidence during an arrest by defecating in her pants and using the faeces to hide the drugs.

On Wednesday, police officers in Corsicana, approximately 55 miles (88 kilometres) south of Dallas, were investigating a report regarding a theft at a grocery store when they tried to subdue a female suspect and take her into police custody. Police say that they placed Shannen Martin at the back of a police cruiser. They said that she defecated in her pants intentionally then tried to hide 2.3 grams of crack cocaine, a crack pipe, and a Valentine’s Day card in her stool.

Officers had to sort through the faeces of the woman in order to retrieve the evidence after she was booked on charges of tampering with evidence and the possession of a controlled substance.
