A 25-year-old Florida man is claiming non-ownership of what law enforcement officials say was cocaine found lodged in his buttocks. When Manatee County Sheriff’s deputies searched Raymond Stanley Roberts during a traffic stop Sept. 29. they said they found bags of marijuana and cocaine.
Roberts reportedly told them “The white stuff is not mine, but the weed is.”
At 8:40 a.m. on Sept. 29, deputies said they stopped Roberts in Bradenton for speeding, according to the Bradenton Herald. While writing the ticket, officers detected the smell of marijuana and asked him the last time he smoked. Roberts admitted to smoking the night before and told the police they could search the rest of his vehicle. When police searched him, they found a soft object in his buttocks and he retrieved the bag of marijuana himself.
When asked if he had anything else on him, Roberts said no. But that’s when police found 27 rocks of crack-cocaine between his butt cheeks. The deputies felt something else in the buttocks area during the search and pulled the bag out through the exterior of his shorts.
Police said the search yielded 4.5 grams of marijuana and 3.5 grams of crack cocaine.
According to USA Today, Roberts told police that the cocaine belonged to a friend who he loaned the car to earlier and only saw the bag as he was being pulled over.
Roberts has been charged with possession of rock cocaine and marijuana and has been released after posting a $1,120 bond.
