FORT PIERCE, Fla., June 15 (UPI) -- A Florida man who was arrested with drugs allegedly hidden between his toes says the drug, which he identified as cocaine, was not his.

Martin Perez, 33, was arrested early June 2 on an aggravated battery charge, tcpalm.com reported.

When he arrived at the St. Lucie County jail in Fort Pierce, Perez was asked if he had any weapons or drugs on him, to which he said no. However, deputies later found a bag of white powder hidden between Perez's toes, officials said.

Perez said the powder was cocaine, but said it wasn't his.

Deputies didn't buy Perez's story, though, and charged him with cocaine possession and smuggling contraband into detention facility.
