Audrain County Man Arrested After Hiding Meth in Body Cavity
A new piece of equipment at the Audrain County Jail was instrumental in catching a suspect attempting to hide drugs on his person.
The Audrain County Sheriff’s Office reports they took delivery on a new body scanner about two weeks ago and completed training on how to use it last Friday.
On Tuesday, Arlie Nole, Jr. was booked into the jail for driving with a revoked license after a traffic stop in Vandalia. When Nole was scanned, an anomaly was found in the image.
When confronted, Nole turned over 19 grams of methamphetamine he had hidden in a body cavity.
Along with driving revoked, Nole is also charged with delivery of a controlled substance and delivery or possession of a controlled substance at a jail.
He remains in custody.
