A Florida man has been charged after trying to hide over $1,000 in his anus.
Pattreon Stokes, 26, was pulled over early on Saturday morning by a Marion County deputy for speeding. The deputy who pulled him over reportedly smelled marijuana coming from inside his car. A search of the car revealed that he was carrying 197 grams of methamphetamine, rock cocaine, 4 grams of heroin, a scale, a small amount of marijuana, and a large amount of money. Stokes also had a 7-month-old child in the car at the time.
Police arrested him immediately but the biggest surprise came when they got back to the Marion County Jail and found the cash had disappeared. Stokes claimed that deputies had already collected the money, but they soon noticed that $20 bills were falling from his anus.
In a process cops called “necessary but undesirable: for everyone involved, they searched and found $1,090.00 in U.S. currency hidden in Stokes’ rectum. He is charged with Smuggling Contraband into a Detention Facility, Trafficking Methamphetamine, Trafficking Heroin, Possession of Cocaine with the Intent to Sell, Manufacture or Deliver, Possession of Marijuana and Possession of Drug Equipment.
