HEIDELBERG TOWNSHIP -- A traffic crash in southern York County led to an unusual find in an unusual hiding place.

on Dec. 1, Christopher Scheller, 18, of no fixed address, was traveling eastbound on Old Hanover Road when he lost control of the vehicle near Pine Drive, slid off the roadway, and struck a tree.

A Southwestern Regional Police Department officer happened upon the crash and summoned medical personnel for non-life threatening injuries. 

The officer found evidence that the driver may have been intoxicated and responded to York Hospital to meet with Scheller.

When medical staff performed an x-ray of Scheller, they found “an abnormality” in his rectum. Scheller at first did not want the object removed, but eventually consented.

Found in his rectum was a bag of synthetic marijuana, a socket for a wrench used for smoking, four bracelets, four necklaces, and 11 ladies' rings.

After the officer investigated this strange occurrence, it was determined that the items were stolen from a residence in Heidelberg Township by the suspect.

Scheller is currently in custody at the York County Prison on unrelated charges. The following additional charges have been filed: Theft, receiving stolen property, DUI, and several other charges. 

Scheller apparently concealed the stolen items in his body as the officer was approaching the scene of the crash.
