New way to hide crack cocaine: Eat it

Published: Wed, June 3, 2009 @ 9:25 p.m.

CAMPBELL — A man stopped by police Tuesday ended up hiding suspected crack cocaine by eating it, police said.

Police stopped Robb Arent, 34, of Youngstown on Jackson Street at 5:35 p.m. Arent told the officer he was dropping off a friend named “Dude,” but didn’t know the friend’s real name or where he’d dropped him off, police said.

The officer asked for permission to search Arent’s car, and he saw a white substance “all over his shirt,” according to the police reports.

When the officer asked Arent to open his mouth, he put his head down. The officer grabbed Arent’s head and told him to open his mouth, and he began to chew. The officer saw the suspected crack on the side of Arent’s mouth, the report said.

Police said an ambulance crew checked Arent, and he was taken to the city jail. He’ll be kept there without bond until his Friday court appearance. He’s charged with tampering with evidence and possession of drugs.

He must of had a good buzz once he got jail. If he ate enough of it he could have died, and the city would be sued for not taking him to the hospital.

If this catches on there would be a market for a refining kit to recover it from the stool. Could this then be considered tainted evidence?

And if it was not proven that he ate anything, the "substance" could have been anything. What if he ate a powdered donut? If it were not proven, shouldn't the Vindicator have printed a retraction after ruining this mans reputation with speculation?

@ jimiohoh


That suspect had better know that swallowing cocaine or any of the other drugs or narcotics can be the end of him.

I once saw a individual try to dispose of a substance by swallowing it. I can't recall exactly what it was he gulped down. But within minutes he was disoriented and by the time he was express transported to ER.

His numbers were flat lining, his lips were darkening and his complexion was bluing. He survived but the lasting effects it had on either his central or peripheral nervous system was lifelong disabling.

It all started happening in what seemed like no longer than 5 or 10 minutes or so. It started with drooling, his eyes got glazed over then he practically went.

If only we would have been so lucky that he did die.
