Scranton Heroin

OCTOBER 3--After collaring a suspected drug dealer, Pennsylvania police recovered 110 bags of heroin from the man’s anus, court records show.

According to Scranton cops, officers arrested Corey Davis, 32, and another man during an undercover operation Thursday afternoon.

Davis, seen at right, was arrested across the street from the Pennsylvania Paper & Supply Company's tower, a downtown Scranton landmark seen in the opening credits of the television show “The Office.”

As detailed in a criminal complaint, a confidential informant working with the Lackawanna County Drug Task Force arranged a $500 heroin buy with Jason Kohut, 44. Kohut, investigators allege, directed the buyer to meet him on a Scranton street, where he had parked his Cadillac Escalade. Kohut was behind the wheel, while Davis was in the front passenger seat.

When undercover cops approached the SUV, they spotted an empty heroin packet near the driver’s seat. A subsequent search of the vehicle turned up several hypodermic needles and additional empty heroin packets.

The suspected drug dealers were then transported to Scranton police headquarters, where Davis reportedly admitted that he “had heroin inside of his anus.” Davis then willingly removed “110 glassine packets of heroin from his anus,” cops reported.

The heroin was packaged in two “bricks” and one “bundle,” according to a complaint charging Davis with three felonies and two misdemeanors.

Davis, who is being held in the Lackawanna County Prison in lieu of $100,000 bail, is scheduled for an October 6 preliminary hearing in Magisterial District Court. (4 pages)
