SCRANTON, Pa. — Police say a Pennsylvania drug suspect was all wet when he urinated in his pants in the hope that it would dissolve the heroin and cocaine in his pocket.

The (Scranton) Times-Tribune (http://bit.ly/2cAxkIu ) says 42-year-old Wesley Autrey sold heroin Tuesday during an undercover sting in Scranton.

When police tried to arrest him afterward, they say he struggled and had to be subdued with a stun gun.

Police say Autrey then began urinating in his pants in an attempt to dissolve the drugs. Police say he was unsuccessful, and they found five small bags of heroin, four small bags of cocaine and $3,000 in cash.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Autrey. He remained in the Lackawanna County jail on Thursday unable to post bond.
