Peter Hans Emery, 56 thought he was a genius when he got to steal opioids from the home he was staying at that time. He went to the medical cabinet and quickly removed some opioids, then ran away. The unfortunate thing for him is that Emergy didn’t steal an opioid. Instead, was a bottle of laxatives, which means he most likely went directly to the bathroom right after taking them.
According to The Smoking Gun, Peter Hans Emery’s theft was caught on video at the Pinellas Park home. He was even seen on video when he ingested some of the pills he stole. Unfortunately for Emery, the Equate Gentle Laxative pills were in a Hydrocodone-Acetaminophen bottle.
