(KMOV) – A man is accused of trying to smuggle drugs inside his buttocks into the St. Louis County jail early last year.

Joseph Barber, 40, was charged Aug. 21 with possession of a controlled substance in a correctional or jail facility.

According to court documents, Barber was being strip-searched as part of the booking process on March 9, 2012 when officers found a tissue containing pills and a rock-like substance inside his anus.

Police said they later tested the substance and discovered it was heroin.
