A Missouri man who attempted to hide a meth pipe beneath a roll of fat thought he had found a safe place for it. Oh, how terribly wrong he was, as the law often goes places washcloths may not.

The Smoking Gun reports that 45-year-old Richard Evans Fotopulos was arrested in May after police in Christian County, Mo. discovered marijuana and meth in his car. He was taken to jail, where authorities found more weed and crystal meth in his socks during a strip search, as well as a glass pipe tucked securely inside of his fat. 

On Monday, Fotopulos was charged with possession of a controlled substance and attempt to sneak a controlled substance into a detention facility. The law usually wins.
