News

CLAY COUNTY, Mo. (KSNT) – Missouri authorities can thank a runaway suspect’s bowels for his arrest over the weekend.

The Clay County Sheriff’s Office announced Tuesday morning they caught a man hiding from search parties after he passed gas so loud, it led them to where he was.

If you’ve got a felony warrant for your arrest, the cops are looking for you and you pass gas so loud it gives up your hiding spot, you’re definitely having a 💩 day. 🚓 #ItHappened
