A Florida man was placed under arrest over the weekend after authorities say he tried to hide $1,000 cash in his rectum.
Pattreon Stokes, 26, was stopped for speeding early Saturday near East Highway 40 and Baseline Road, according to the Marion County Sheriff's Office. A 7-month-old child was in the passenger seat of his white Buick.
According to authorities, nearly 200 grams of methamphetamine, some crack cocaine, heroin and a scale were found during a search of the vehicle. Deputies also said they found a large wad of cash and some marijuana on Stokes' person.
The cash was allegedly missing by the time they got to the jail. That's when deputies noticed $20 bills "falling from Stokes' buttocks area," according to the Marion County Sheriff's Office.
"After a necessary but undesirable process for everyone involved, [detention deputies] located $1,090.00 in U.S. currency hidden in Stokes' rectum," the agency wrote in a Facebook post.
Stokes faces a list of charges, including smuggling contraband into a detention facility, trafficking methamphetamine, trafficking heroin, possession of cocaine with intent to sell, manufacture or deliver.
