Man Accused Of Hiding Drugs In Body CavityPosted: Updated:
Police say a man they were processing on an arrest warrant was hiding several packets of what they think is crack cocaine in a body cavity.
Members of the Metro-Jefferson Drug Task Force say they had a sealed indictment warrant for 29 year old Jeremy Flowers and pulled him over while he was driving on State Street in Carthage.
He was taken for processing to Jefferson County jail where police say corrections officers found 17 envelopes of what they suspect is crack cocaine in a body cavity.
Police say the drugs have a street value of around $850.
Flowers was charged with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and first-degree promoting prison contraband.
He was arraigned on the new charges in Watertown city court and returned to jail without bail.
He will be arraigned in county court to answer the charges in the sealed indictment at a later date.
Police continue to investigate and say other charges are pending,
