Police find gun hidden in man's butt during strip search


Deputies at a Louisiana Jail found a gun hidden in the buttocks of a man who was arrested after officers found a "zip gun" and silencer in his truck.

Officers with the Golden Meadow Police Department were investigating suspicious activity at the home of Lori Dupuy on Dec. 28.

When officers approached Dupuy, she gave a false name and fled the scene. But officers then questioned Justin Savoie, who was also at the home.

Officers also located a homemade "zip gun" in his truck and several additional firearms and homemade suppressors inside the vehicle.

While Savoie was undergoing a strip search during processing into the Lafourche Parish Jail, deputies found a small gun concealed in his butt.

The caliber and make of the gun has not been released.

Savoie was charged with first offense possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, a felony charge of taking contraband to penal institution, and a felony charge of improper registration of a firearm.

He was released after posting a $10,600 bond.
