A Fort Pierce man riding a bicycle thought he had the perfect spot to hide his crack, but he didn’t count on a police dog’s sense of smell.
Clarell Jamar Colbert was arrested after police found a tube of crack in his buttocks after a drug sniffing dog smelled a “narcotic odor coming from his rear,” according to tcpalm.com.
According to a police report, Colbert, 19, was spotted riding his bike on Feb. 18 by a St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office deputy, in the middle of the street where he was obstructing traffic.
When the deputy approached Colbert, he jumped off his bike and started getting “very loud.” When the officer tried to pat him down, Colbert “pulled away when he got near Colbert’s rear waist line,” according to the report.
As the deputy searched Colbert, he felt something tube-like in his behind. A drug sniffing dog was called in and immediately smelled the “narcotic odor” where the sun don’t shine.
Colbert was taken to a nearby church’s bathroom, so that the deputy could get the tube out in private.
When the deputy retrieved the tube, he found it contained 12 crack cocaine rocks. He also found $145 on Colbert.
Colbert was arrested on charges of drug possession with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia.
