: Meet the Florida man who allegedly attempted to stash $1,000 in his rectum. Cops say Pattreon Stokes had $20 bills falling from his buttocks area after he was stopped for speeding in his white Buick vehicle in Ocala, Florida, on Saturday (August 26). A 7-month-old child was in the passenger seat at the time, according to police. Nearly 200 grams of methamphetamine, a quantity of crack cocaine, heroin and a set of scales were also found during a search of the vehicle.
Cops say they discovered a large wad of cash and some marijuana on Stokes’ person, but that the cash was missing by the time they arrived at the jail. That’s when officers noticed $20 bills “falling from Stokes’ buttocks area,” according to 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 now 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.
