‘Unusual’ underwear bulge tips off cops to stashed meth and cocaine

An "unusual bulge" in a suspect's underwear netted police a small amount of meth and cocaine early Thursday morning.

An “unusual bulge” in a suspect’s underwear netted police a small amount of meth and cocaine early Thursday morning.

Around 12:30 a.m, a Saanich police officer at Craigflower and Admirals roads spotted a car he recognized. The vehicle pulled into the Mac’s convenience store at the corner, and the officer knew the car’s owner had a court-ordered curfew.

Upon speaking with the driver, the officer spotted a drug pipe in the pant pocket of the man, who was under a court ordered to not possess any non-prescription drugs.

The 21-year-old male driver was arrested for violating his release conditions and taken into custody.

At the Saanich police department, officers conducted a more thorough search and noticed an unusual bulge in the Langford man’s boxer shorts.

“Hidden in the boxers was a plastic prescription bottle (in the name of the suspect) which contained ten different packages of drugs believed to be cocaine and meth,” Sgt. Dean Jantzen said in a statement sent to the media.

Police are suggesting additional charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking.
