Indiana officials find scissors hidden inside man arrested after body scan
Indiana deputies found a pair of scissors inside an arrested person’s anal cavity during a body scan required before he was jailed.
La Porte County Sheriff’s Office, Lt. Jeff Holt, deputy commander of operations at La Porte County Jail, was helping jail deputies greet a person arrested May 17 who refused a “SecurPASS” body scan .
The reluctant arrestee eventually accepted the scan, and upon reviewing the images, Holt observed a foreign object lodged inside the man’s anal cavity.
Due to his training and experience, Holt was able to recognize the object as a metallic object. The arrested person was then escorted to another room for further search.

The arrested person initially refused to cooperate with the deputies.
A second body scan was performed. Holt noticed while examining these images that the object had moved, allowing him to positively identify it as a pair of scissors.
The scissors were later removed from the arrested person’s body without incident.
