A preliminary hearing was reset this week for a 29-year-old man who allegedly robbed a convenience store of candy and then when arrested and searched, allegedly had methamphetamine hidden in his rectum.
Michael Daniel Aragon, of Daly City, was ordered to return to court April 2 for a hearing to determine whether evidence presented warrants a trial.
He is charged with second-degree robbery, drug possession, a weapons charge and altering a device to resemble a firearm.
Aragon was arrested following the robbery of a 7-Eleven store in South San Francisco about 3:30 a.m. Feb. 2.
The suspect showed the clerk a pistol replica but it was a pellet gun; he had already bought rolled tacos but for some reason he returned and tried to sneak candy out in his pants.
When confronted he allegedly pulled up his shirt and displayed the gun, telling the clerk he had no money but he had a weapon.
Then, inexplicably, he bought more Taquitos, police said.
He left the store but not the area, police said, and officers found him nearby, sitting in his vehicle, with the candy.
The bag of methamphetamine was found in his rectum, according to San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
Aragon remained behind bars in lieu of $500,000 bail; the preliminary hearing is expected to take an hour, Wagstaffe said.
