SALISBURY - On Tuesday, a 19 year old resident of Kannapolis, with an extensive criminal history was found with controlled substances hidden in his rectum area when he was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center.
Brandon Lee Rumple, of 504 Carter Street, Kannapolis, had his probation revoked in Rowan County Superior Court and was brought to the Detention Center for processing.
Once in the facility, Rumple was informed that he would be strip searched. Rumple refused, but eventually agreed to surrender to authorities what he was carrying.
Rumple removed a balloon from his rectum.
Rumple was questioned about the contents of the balloon and he readily admitted that it was Xanax and Suboxone strips, both controlled substances.
Xanax is a drug used to treat anxiety and panic, while Suboxone is used to treat Opioid dependency.
