HEIDLEBERG TOWNSHIP, Pa. – In early December, 18-year-old Christopher Scheller was heading eastbound on Old Hanover Rd when he lost control of his vehicle and slid off the road into a tree. Although his injuries were non-life threatening, a responding officer summoned medical personnel to the scene and Scheller was transported to York Hospital.
Upon closer examination of the crash scene, the officer found evidence suggesting Scheller may have been intoxicated. The officer then headed to York Hospital to have a chat with the suspect.
Meanwhile, the medical staff x-rayed Scheller and discovered an “abnormality” in his rectum. The “abnormality” turned out to be a bag of synthetic marijuana, a socket wrench used for smoking, 4 bracelets, 4 necklace and 11 ladies rings.
It was determined that the items were stolen from a residence in Heidelberg Twp. The working theory is that Scheller concealed the stolen items in his body as the officer approached the crash site. I, for one, commend him on his speed and dexterity.
Scheller faces charges of theft, receiving stolen property and DUI among others. He is currently in custody at the York County Prison on unrelated charges.
