A Doña Ana County Detention Center inmate is in critical condition after what appears to be an overdose.

Detention officers found the unidentified 28-year-old in his booking cell on Thursday around 6:30 a.m. His skin appeared bluish gray.

Medical staff say they found a baggie of heroin inside the man's anal cavity and believe the drugs may have leaked into the man's system.

He was being held on a warrant after not showing up to court.

The Doña Ana County Sheriff's Office is investigating the incident.
