An alleged Bloods gang member was caught with 100 bags of heroin in his rectum as a result of a routine traffic stop in New Jersey, according to a police report obtained by The Record.
Rasoul H. Speight of Port Jervis, N.Y., and Gary T. Sylak of Shandaken, N.Y., were stopped by cops as they traveled north on the Palisades Interstate Parkway because their 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer had unclear license plates.
When the officers approached the vehicle, they allegedly smelled marijuana and asked for permission to search the car. Though nothing was found inside of the vehicle, a records check revealed that both men had outstanding warrants for traffic violations. Both men were cuffed and transported to the Interstate Parkway Police headquarters in Alpine, N.J.
