OCTOBER 1–A Florida man arrested Wednesday on drug charges told cops that a bag of cocaine found hidden inside his buttocks did not belong to him. Though the suspect did cop to ownership of a bag of marijuana hidden alongside the coke.
The narcotics were discovered by Manatee County Sheriff’s Office deputies after Raymond Roberts’s Hyundai was pulled over on a Bradenton street for speeding Wednesday morning. Investigators, who reported smelling a strong odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle, subsequently searched the 25-year-old Roberts and discovered his hidden stash.
During the search, when Deputy Sean Cappiello “felt a soft object in the crack of his buttocks,” the suspect “began to tense up.” Roberts volunteered to remove the item. “Let me get it, hold on” he said, and proceeded to place a “clear plastic baggie with a green leafy substance” on the car's hood.
