Vermont police last week arrested a New York City man who hid large quantities of crack cocaine, marijuana, and Oxycodone inside his body.
29-year-old Alex Boulet is facing felony drug charges stemming from a May 4 traffic stop in Rockingham.
Boulet, from Staten Island, was driving a 2012 Chevrolet Malibu when a state trooper pulled the vehicle over after it swerved across lanes at around 11 PM.
During a subsequent pat down of Boulet (who used the alias “Elijah Jones”), a trooper “felt a hard object, the approximate size of a golf ball that was separate from his genitals.”
Investigators secured a warrant to search Boulet using X-ray or other non-intrusive medical procedures to search for narcotics.
After an initial X-ray at a local hospital revealed a foreign object in his rectum, Boulet was given a laxative by hospital staffers.
Boulet subsequently passed a plastic bag containing several other bags that contained a total of 84 crack rocks “all packaged individually.”
After a second X-ray showed “more foreign objects,” Boulet returned to the commode in his hospital room.
He then passed two plastic bags containing a total of 218 Oxycodone pills. Boulet expelled the powerful painkiller from his rectum more than five hours after passing the crack cocaine.
When a third X-ray revealed that Boulet was still holding, he was transferred to the intensive care unit of a second hospital.
While there, he “passed his fourth bag of contraband,” noted Trooper Kevin Hughes in the May 7 affidavit.
The final bag contained 11.5 grams of marijuana.
As a result of his secret dispensary, Boulet was charged with possession of crack cocaine, marijuana, and a regulated drug.
He is locked up in the Marble Valley Correctional Center in lieu of $50,000 bail.
