OKEECHOBEE, Fla. (AP) — An obese inmate was caught hiding crack cocaine in a cigar holder under a roll of fat beneath his stomach, jail officials said Wednesday.
Another inmate told jail officials that 6-foot-2-inch Jonathan Wilson, who weighs 350 pounds, had the drugs, according to an Okeechobee County sheriff's report.
A deputy was unable to find any drugs on 27-year-old Wilson in a strip search, the Daily Okeechobee News reported. But a second search "located a small brown cylinder that is used to carry cigars concealed in a fat roll at the bottom of inmate Wilson's stomach," the report said.
The tube contained about 1.9 grams of suspected cocaine.
Jailed on sale and possession of cocaine charges, Wilson faces an additional charge for introduction of contraband into a detention facility.
