Suspect caught 'dealing drugs out of his underwear'

Mounties say accused was packing heroin, meth and cocaine in secret zipper pocket of his underpants.

From the Dept. of Oh No He Didn't comes news that police have arrested a man they say was dealing drugs out of his underpants.

The Canadian Press has the story:

KELOWNA -- Police don't usually care about underworld underwear, but this case was different.

After watching a man make some drug deals from his car in downtown Kelowna, the Mounties moved in and searched him.

They found his undershorts were outfitted with a hidden, zippered compartment containing small packets of cocaine, meth and heroin.

They also turned up some illicit prescription medication and a can of bear spray.

The 31-year old Kelowna man was set for a short -- or maybe it was a brief -- appearance in court Wednesday on drug and weapons charges.
