At first, Indiana police officers couldn’t figure out why a suspect they arrested Wednesday began looking green around the gills — until they finally discovered his illness stemmed from something he was eating: a bag of heroin.
Muncie resident Colin Lee Shopher, 39, was a passenger in a car that was stopped for a traffic offense, according to his arrest report. He was taken into custody after officers saw him throw a bag containing heroin and methamphetamine from the car. However, it turned out he had an even bigger bag hidden on him — which he stuffed into his mouth after he was taken into custody, police say. When officers asked what he was chewing on. Shopher responded, “Nothing you want,” the report indicates.
