A Northumberland Avenue man who police say did a sloppy job trying to conceal crack cocaine was charged early Tuesday with tampering with physical evidence and other counts, Buffalo police reported Tuesday.

Augustus Kidd, 24, drew attention to himself by parking in front of a fire hydrant, Officers John Beyer and Kelvin L. Sharpe reported, then made matters worse for himself when he tried to push a plastic bag into this buttocks when the officers approached Kidd’s vehicle at Sweet Avenue and Broadway.

The officers said they saw Kidd “making aggressive shoving movements to his back side” as they walked toward the vehicle, according to a police report. As Kidd exited the car, his pants and underwear were partially down and a plastic bag containing a white rocky substance was hanging out of the back of his pants, the officers said.

The officers said they tried to remove the bag and Kidd tried to run away and had to be forcibly subdued.

Kidd was charged with tampering with physical evidence, obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest.
