Police catch suspect after he farts too loud

Bet he wishes it had been silent but deadly.

July 10, 2019

ST. LOUIS (KNOU) -- A suspect tried hiding from police but was found after passing gas so loud that the Liberty Police Department were able to "sniff him out"

The suspect was wanted for possession of a controlled substance in Clay County near Kansas City, but unfortunately for him the list of controlled subtances didn't include pepto-bismol. 

"We’ve gotta give props to Liberty PD for using their senses to sniff him out!" the Clay County Sheriff's Office wrote on Facebook Tuesday. 

Authorities did not release the man's name, but said he wasn't having a great day for obvious reasons.

In response to the news, one of the facebook comments read "doesn’t sound like he had much control of his “substance” to me."

Despite trying to throw police off his scent, it's clear that this situation really stinks for the suspect.
