Fentanyl Dealer Exposed on Toilet

(Michigan City, IN) - Charges have been filed against a suspected drug dealer nabbed during a foot chase, triggered by a traffic stop in Michigan City. Armon Sanders, 24, is lucky to be alive because he allegedly concealed a large number of fentanyl tablets in his rectum.


According to court documents, he fled from the passenger side of a vehicle stopped for a traffic violation Saturday and continued to run despite repeated commands for him to stop.


He was spotted placing his backpack and jacket into a trash can behind a residence in the 100 block of Orchard Street before being grabbed. He was then taken to the police department, where he expressed a need to use the bathroom.


An officer, suspecting he was trying to dispose of drugs, asked him a short time later to stand up from the toilet. Sanders then grabbed a plastic baggie from the toilet and tried to reinsert the baggie into his anus.


Police were able to take possession of the baggie, which allegedly contained 75 tablets containing fentanyl.  Sanders is also accused of having about a half pound of marijuana elsewhere on his possession.
