A 37-year-old Florida man busted for cocaine possession tried sneaking pills and opioids into jail by stashing the drugs in his prosthetic leg!
The man was a passenger in a vehicle pulled over during a traffic stop and put up a struggle when police discovered he was sitting on a drug pipe that allegedly contained cocaine. He was placed under arrest and a field test was said to have confirmed the presence of coke. According to sheriff’s deputies, the man was asked if his artificial limb contained contraband. Despite being warned that bringing illegal substances into a jail would amount to further charges, cops says he denied anything was stashed in his leg.
A search of that prosthetic at the jail reportedly turned up Xanax pills and a gram of Fentanyl.
He now faces three felony charges and one misdemeanor count.
