BRADENTON, Fla. (CBS/AP) When sheriff's deputies allegedly discovered bags of marijuana and cocaine between a man's buttocks, they say he was quick to explain.
Manatee County deputies say Raymond Stanley Roberts told them, "The white stuff is not mine, but the weed is."
A sort of half-a**ed explanation, don't you think?
Officers stopped the 25-year-old Roberts for speeding last Wednesday in Bradenton. They say that's when they smelled marijuana, so they searched him. And that's when that bag of "weed" came to light.
But then officers say they uncovered that other bag. The one the police report says contained 27 pieces of rock cocaine.
The one the suspect said belonged to someone else.
The Bradenton Herald reports Roberts was arrested for drug possession and bonded out of jail. Perhaps not surprisingly, the person who answered the phone Friday at a number listed for Roberts said it wasn't his.
