Thief suspect pleads not guilty to swiping candy, hiding meth
February 15, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

The 29-year-old man discovered with methamphetamine hidden in his rectum while being booked into the county jail on suspicion of flashing a fake gun to swipe candy from a South San Francisco 7-Eleven pleaded not guilty to second-degree robbery and drug charges.

Michael Daniel Aragon, of Daly City, is also charged with altering an imitation firearm to resemble a real weapon. After entering his plea, Aragon waived his right to a speedy trial and was scheduled for a one-hour preliminary hearing March 19.

Authorities say Aragon entered the convenience store on El Camino Real at 3:30 a.m. Feb. 2 and bought some taquitos before leaving. A few minutes later, he reportedly came back and hid two pieces of candy in his pants before trying to leave without paying. When the clerk confronted Aragon, police say he pulled up his shirt to show a weapon that turned out to be a BB handgun and said he had no money.

A second clerk called police but, before they arrived, Aragon purchased some more taquitos before leaving in his car. South San Francisco police found Aragon in a nearby car with the replica gun in the truck and the purloined candy in his possession.

During Aragon's booking into the Maguire Correctional Facility in Redwood City, jail authorities reported finding a bag of methamphetamine concealed in his rectum.

Aragon remains in custody on $500,000 bail.
