MANATEE, Fla., Oct. 1 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said a suspect arrested for drug possession denied ownership of the cocaine he was found to be concealing in his buttocks.

The Manatee County Sheriff's Office said Raymond Stanley Roberts, 25, was pulled over at 8:40 a.m. Wednesday in Manatee and the deputy writing the speeding ticket detected the odor of marijuana in the car, The Bradenton Herald reported Friday.

Roberts admitted to smoking marijuana the previous evening and invited deputies to search his car, the sheriff's office report said.

Deputies searching Roberts' person discovered a soft object in his buttocks that Roberts then took out and gave to the deputies, who identified it as a baggie of marijuana. Deputies said they found a second soft object in Roberts' buttocks that was removed and identified as cocaine.

"The white stuff is not mine, but the weed is," the report quotes Roberts as saying to deputies.

Roberts was charged with possession of rock cocaine and marijuana and was released from jail Wednesday after posting $1,120 bond.
