(Liberty, Mo.) — Law enforcement a few hours north of Joplin are sharing the unlikely way they managed to capture a suspect wanted for possession of a controlled substance.

The sheriff tweeted about the incident, saying “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 💩 day.”

The City of Liberty thanked the Clay County sheriff’s office for “airing out a wanted person’s dirty laundry.”

Adding that the incident “stinks for the arrestee.”
