A Florida man has been caught between a rock and a hard place this week after police found bags of cocaine and meth strapped to his penis.
Patrick Florence, the man in question, was in the passenger seat of a car driving at 4am when officers noticed it did not have its headlights or taillights on.
They then reportedly pulled the vehicle over and searched it, firstly finding a gun under the passenger’s seat where Florence was sitting.
Florence was then strip-searched by the police who then found two baggies strapped to his penis, one containing methamphetamine and the other full of cocaine.
According to Deputy Levi Blake, Florence 'stated the package wrapped around his penis was not his', however did not reveal to the police the true owner of the illegal substances.
He also denied that the firearm found under his seat was anything to do with him.
Police later charged the man with four felonies including possession of ammunition, a firearm, cocaine and meth and booked him into the Pinellas County Jail, as per Fox News.
This bizarre hiding place for drugs, especially for drugs that aren’t yours, is actually a whole lot more common than you might think.
Just earlier this year, also in Florida, a man called Shaft Bang Adams was arrested when police found four white crystal rocks inside the skin of his penis during a strip search, according to local media.
Yes, you heard that right.
Clearly having a similar idea, last year a British man was sentenced to 2 years in prison after being caught at Brussels Airport trying to smuggle cocaine in an artificial penis.
He stated during the subsequent police investigation that the 127g of cocaine found in his possession came from Jamaica and he was trying to take it home so he could try it himself, rather than sell it on.
The smuggler was able to get a suspended sentence as his lawyer stated: “My client has kidney failure and needs exercise and a good diet. Both are not possible in our prisons, so I asked for a suspended sentence.”
