This is not the kind of thing you hear about in the news typically, but it happened according to the Clay County Sheriff's Department in Missouri.

According to a post on their Facebook page, a man who was hiding from the cops was actually caught after he loudly farted!

This past weekend, Liberty Police were searching for a man who had a felony arrest warrant for Possession of a Controlled Substance.

In order to avoid being arrested, the man hid, but it didn't matter once his digestive system took over.

When he 'broke wind', he gave away his hiding spot.

The Sheriff's Department even had something to say about the incident on their Facebook page:

"If you've got a felony warrant for your arrest, the cops are looking for you and you pass gas so loud it gives up your hiding spot, you're definitely having a (poop emoji) day. #ItHappened."
