Police recorder flushed down toilet

Authorities in Florida have revealed a man confessed to trafficking methamphetamine - and then flushed the detective's recorder down the toilet.

Polk County deputies say they found 30-year-old Patrick Townsend driving with 32.4 grams of meth in his boxer shorts during a traffic stop.

Deputies say Townsend confessed, claiming he usually deals in much larger quantities. A detective recorded the confession but left the recorder on a desk. Authorities say Townsend grabbed it, hid it in his armpit and asked to use the toilet, where he flushed it.

Townsend was jailed without bail today, charged with meth trafficking and destroying evidence.
