HUDSON, Fla., Jan. 7 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said a man allegedly spotted with a bag of meth and pot inside a Kmart store was wearing a T-shirt reading, "I have drugs."

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office said a deputy saw John Balmer, 50, attempt to hand off a "bag of green leafy substance" to the person behind him in line Monday at the Kmart store in Hudson, but the person refused to take the bag.


Balmer set the bag on the ground and paid for his items while another deputy approached and was alerted to the bag by store employees, the sheriff's office said.

The bag was found to contain marijuana and methamphetamine.

A photo from Balmer's arrest reveals he was wearing a T-shirt reading, "Who needs drugs?" with smaller print underneath reading, "No, seriously, I have drugs."

Balmer was charged with one count of possession of methamphetamine and one count of possession of marijuana not more than 20 grams.
