In October 2019, Missouri police revealed that they located a suspect after he farted loudly. The Clay County Missouri Sherriff’s Office said on social media: “If you’ve got a felony warrant for your arrest, the cops are looking for you and you pass gas so loud it gives up your hiding spot, you’re definitely having a [poop emoji] day.”
In September 2019, a man in Scotland intentionally farted as police officers conducted a body cavity search and was ordered to perform 75 hours of community service.
