Doña Ana County, NM (KDBC) — A man being booked in jail this weekend for not paying fines, is facing drug charges, after he was allegedly caught trying to hide drugs in his rectum.
Albert Sandoval, 34, was being moved from one cell to another at the Dona Ana County Detention Center when the officer says he saw Sandoval trying to jam the baggie up into his rectum.
When the officer tried to stop him, he said Sandoval tried to swallow it but he was able to take it away.
He's now charged with felony heroin possession and tampering with evidence.
