Poorly-timed (and really loud) fart helps officers sniff out suspect wanted on drug charge

Yep, that happened.

CLAY COUNTY, Mo. — A poorly-timed fart helped Missouri officers catch a suspect wanted on a felony drug charge over the weekend. 

Liberty Police made the arrest after the suspect passed gas so loudly, it gave up his hiding spot, according to a post by the Clay County Sheriff's Office. 

The suspect was wanted for possession of a controlled substance. 

The sheriff's office posted a photo of the search on Twitter, and gave "props" to Liberty Police for "using their senses to sniff him out!"
