PANAMA CITY, Fla., Aug. 19 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said they recovered $45 that fell out of an arrested man's anus during a strip search at the Bay County Jail.

Officers said Nicholas Ryan Harris, 19, told officers there was nothing hidden on his body following his arrest on charges of driving under the influence, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia, the Panama City News Herald reported Thursday.

However, the incident report states "several dollar bills fell from Nicholas' buttocks area" during a strip search at the Bay County Jail.

Harris is now facing a charge of introducing contraband into a county facility.
