∞ Suspect charged with obstruction after swallowing flash drive

This was just too good to pass up. Florin Necula was arrested for allegedly skimming card numbers from ATM machines in New York City. While in custody, Necula swallowed a flash drive, I suppose to conceal information about his crimes from the police. He later allowed doctors to perform a procedure to get the drive out and then the police charged him with obstruction of justice. There is no word on if the data on the drive was ruined or not.

    Obstruction of something, anyhow.

  • Gustav

    Makes sense – it's an attempt to conceal or destroy evidence. Pretty cut and dry here.
