Perry resident allegedly eats evidence
|Kenneth Shearing Jr.|
On April 13 the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office received a complaint of a car driving all over the road on Interstate 390. Once the vehicle was located by deputies, a traffic stop ensued.
When the deputy approached the vehicle of Kenneth J. Shearing Jr., of Perry, and requested his license, a foil wrapper allegedly fell out of the driver’s wallet.
When the officer questioned what the wrapper was, he said Shearing opened the foil, which contained a Suboxone strip, then put the strip in his mouth and ate the evidence.
Subsequently, the 35-year-old Perry man was arrested and charged with tampering with physical evidence, a felony.
Shearing was put in Livingston County Jail on $1,500 cash bail or $3,000 bond.
