A South Jersey man is in trouble with the law after cops say he vomited 32 bags of heroin while in jail for possession of heroin and other charges.

Gloucester Township Police say the scene unfolded on the afternoon of April 5th when an officer saw a car speeding through a construction zone on Sicklerville Road. Once the driver saw police, he quickly turned into a Wawa parking lot, the driver and passenger switched seats, then left.

Despite providing officers with a false name once the car was stopped, the passenger was identified as 24-year-old Michael Rosario; he was placed under arrest for several outstanding warrants. Rosario was also found to be in possession of six bags of heroin and thirteen empty bags of heroin containing heroin residue.

While Rosario was in the Camden County Jail, officers located a small plastic bag containing 32 additional bags of heroin against the upper bridge of Rosario’s mouth that he regurgitated from his stomach. Rosario was taken back to the Gloucester Township Police Department and charged with additional charges, then taken to a hospital for treatment, and then taken back to the Camden County Jail where he was last said to be.
