Doctors Surgically Remove 163gms of Smuggled Heroine

A team of surgeons at a Massachusetts Hospital removed a total of 163 grams of heroin from a 51-year-old man's stomach, intestines, and even his rectum. The six-ounce bags were removed through a surgical operation conducted under police observation.

Miguel Rodriguez, a 51-year-old citizen of the Dominican Republic who had just arrived at the U.S. allegedly swallowed 27 bags full of heroin to smuggle them into the United States.

Rodriguez reported to the North Shore Medical Center Salem Hospital, complaining that he was feeling sick after eating a lobster. However, after consulting the patient, the staff recognized his symptoms as he was suffering from drugs intoxication. So, he was treated with the drug Narcan, a lifesaving drug for opioid overdose.

Miguel Rodriguez was charged with drug trafficking. However, since Rodriguez is currently recuperating in the hospital from major surgery, the Court has agreed to set a bail. According to the Court, the bail for Rodriguez's release has been set at 500.000 dollars.
