Murder suspect hides gun in rectum

Posted: Jan 13, 2012 11:53 AM CST Updated: Jan 13, 2012 2:53 PM CST

JACKSONVILLE, NC (WECT/WITN) – A man wanted for first degree murder in the Atlanta area was arrested in Onslow County. Deputies in Onslow County say the man hid a large handgun in a body cavity.

According to the sheriff's office, Trooper Scott Merritt spotted Michael Ward driving more than 90 mph on Highway 17. He and another trooper from Duplin County worked together to stop Ward.

Highway Patrol told WITN Ward rolled up his windows and locked his car when troopers approached. Both he and a woman in his vehicle claiming to be his wife refused to roll down the windows.

WITN is reporting troopers were able to get the door open and had to taze Ward, who was then taken to the hospital after complaints of heart problems and being unable to walk.

The sheriff's office said Ward was examined at the hospital and released back into Trooper Merritt's custody, who took Ward to be booked into the jail.

Ward was strip searched before being booked and underwent the standard "squat and cough" procedure. According to the sheriff's office, Ward used another person's identity during the arrest and booking process.

Detention officers found a .38 caliber handgun in Ward's cell the next day. Jailers eventually discovered Ward stored the 6-inched barrel gun in his rectum. He will be taken to the hospital for examination of possible injuries.

The sheriff's office said the gun was not loaded at the time, but was test fired by investigators to determine its functionality, and it was in operational condition.

Ward is wanted for a homicide that happened in the Atlanta area in October 2011.

Investigators with the Onslow County Sheriff's Office are assisting the Atlanta Police Department with their investigation.

Rumor on the street is that Barney Frank has been trying to contact Mr. Ward for advice on insertion techniques.

“Rectum?”

“According to the sheriff’s office, Ward was taken to Onslow Memorial Hospital for possible injuries that may have occurred to Ward’s rectum during concealment the revolver, which has a six-inch barrel. He was still being examined at the hospital on Friday night.”

Possible injuries? The intestines and other parts of the digestive system are not shaped like that, how can you NOT get injured?

...but was test fired by investigators to determine its functionality...

Ewwwww....

No fricken way. This is a bullshit story cooked up by a bunch of cops who have no other way to explain the fact they either let a improperly searched detainee into jail or there was a weapon already in the cell. Either way, somebody should get fired. I can imagine the conversation now: “Well how’d the gun git in there?” “I dunno - meybe he done pulled it out his ass.” “Yeah. Let’s go with that.”

Yet the hospital managed to miss it too.

He was taken to the hospital, AFTER the gun was discovered in the toilet, to check his rectum for injuries.

You can bet on one thing: This isn’t the first thing that has been inserted in that rectum.

..complained of heart problems and unable to walk.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Uh, pretty good reason for not being able to walk, no?

And you thought a finger wave was uncomfortable.

BTW maybe, just maybe, the 8” barrel may have found its way up the Hershey Highway but how does that explain the grip, trigger housing and hammer etal being lodged far enough up to ‘pass’ a body cavity search.

That said, just how much time has this guy spent in jail? and the girlfriend most definitely must be a ‘beard’.

Apparently these NC deputies aren’t grads of the TSA body search program..

He made two trips to the hospital. Once before he was booked into t5he jail and again after the gun was found.

If a ‘guy’ gets that close to me I am going to expect dinner and if a ‘gal’ gets that close she may get a little surprise.

This is entirely misreported. The suspect was simply storing his revolver in a standard in-the-butt holster, available at any sporting goods store or pharmacy. Several models can be found next to the in-the-pants, on-the-hip, in-the-waistband, or in-the-bellybutton holsters. /lame humor

Not a great day for the rookie who got to clean the pistol for the test firing... Probably would be a good ad for the manufacturer though.

I’m not above carrying in favor of deep concealment versus quickdraw, but dayyum! I needn’t visit the terlit to reach mine!

There’s no mention of his holstering it in at least a plastic bag, is there? Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

Might be one case, were I the detention occifer, I’d say, “Naw, you can keep it.”

"Jailers eventually discovered Ward stored the 6-inched barrel gun in his rectum."

What tipped them off was the fact the perp kept bending over and yelling "say hello to my leeettle friend!"

At first they thought he was just trying to get along.
