Police: Man found with crack pipe between buttocks also stole from Walmarts
West Manheim Township police officers who pulled over two Baltimore men Wednesday for speeding allege they found a crack pipe between one of the men's buttocks and evidence in their car tying them to $6,000 goods stolen from area Walmarts.
David Joseph Schultz, 35, and Ricky Alan Alt, 55, both of Baltimore, are charged with one count each of possession of conspiracy to commit felony-level theft and one count of drug paraphernalia, which is a misdemeanor. Schultz was also charged with a felony count of retail theft, and Alt was cited for speeding.
Alt was driving the pair down the 3400 block of Baltimore Pike at about 12:45 a.m. when officers pulled them over for allegedly going more than 80 mph in a 40 mph zone, according to charging documents.
Police found Schultz had a warrant out for his arrest from Maryland. Officers searched the car, and found syringes and other drug paraphernalia, police say.
That's when Schultz allegedly told them he had a glass crack pipe stashed away in his intergluteal cleft — between the cheeks of his backside, according to documents. He handed it over to the officers, documents state.
Theft: Police allege they also found items that had been stolen from the Walmart at 1881 Baltimore Pike in the township earlier that night.
The officers arrested the pair, who were arraigned on the drug charges later that morning. Police later filed the theft charges, alleging that the pair stole at least $2,100 worth of merchandise over the previous 10 days from that Walmart, and more than $4,000 worth of merchandise from other Walmarts in the area.
Both men remain in York County Prison — Schultz in lieu of $12,000 and Alt on $10,000 monetary bail, according to prison records.
