Police: Norwalk man hid drugs in his rectum

WESTPORT — A Norwalk man is facing drug charges after attempting to conceal drugs from cops by hiding them in his rectum, police said.

Supreme Harmon, 29, was traveling down Saugatuck Avenue around 7:30 p.m. when he was pulled over for having darkly tinted windows, police said.

Upon pulling Harmon over, the officer reported smelling a strong odor of marijuana from the vehicle.

Police said Harmon denied having any drugs in the car.

A K9 unit was called to the scene and a search of the vehicle revealed a small white glassine fold, which police said is often used in packaging heroin, on the pavement where Harmon was being held. The unit also discovered a small bag containing 1.7 grams of marijuana beneath the passenger seat.

As the K9 unit searched the vehicle, an officer reported that Harmon looked increasingly uncomfortable the longer the search continued.

Eventually, police said, Harmon admitted that he stowed more drugs in his rectum to conceal them from police.

Harmon proceeded to retrieve the plastic baggy full of drugs from his rectum, and turned them over to police, Lt. David Farrell said.

Police said the bag contained 17 glassine bags of heroin and 3.9 grams of marijuana.

Harmon was charged with tampering with and/or fabricating physical evidence, possession of less than a half-ounce of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance, operating a motor vehicle without a permit and driving without a license.

He posted his $10,000 bail and is expected in court May 17.
