(TMU) — In what was an unlucky turn of events for one Missouri man wanted for possession of a controlled substance, law enforcement officers were able “sniff out” his hiding location after he farted loud enough for nearby officers to hear.
In a Facebook post, the Clay County Sheriff’s Department made light of the unusual situation.
“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,” the post reads.

The sheriff’s office told Fox 2, “the person was arrested over the weekend on a Clay County warrant for Possession of a Controlled Substance. We’ve gotta give props to Liberty (Missouri) PD for using their senses to sniff him out!”
Liberty City Police Department tweeted about the unusual circumstances.
