According to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, a Florida man stopped for a routine traffic violation led to the discovery of a large cache of drugs inside the vehicle.
Besides just the drugs though, Sheriff's Deputies will likely never forget what else they found <i>hiding deep inside the suspect</i>, or more importantly <i>where they found it</i>.
Deputy Calvin Bates or the Marion County Sheriff’s Department says he stopped 26 year old Pattreon Stokes for speeding, in what would been a ticketed violation and the driver sent on his way.
Unfortunately for both Bates and the driver, the lingering scent of marijuana coming from the vehicle simply couldn't be ignored.

Upon further search of the vehicle, found approximately 197 grams worth of Methamphetamine, Crack-Cocaine, and an additional 4 grams of Heroin.
A digital scale used to measure the drugs before sales was also located inside the vehicle, automatically adding a trafficking charge to any amount of illegal narcotics.
Deputies also said that Stokes also had a very small amount of marijuana and an even larger amount of currency on his person as the time of the arrest.
Stokes went from baller to defendant immediately and was arrested and taken to the Marion County Jail.
However, the plot had only began to thicken according to Marion County Sheriff’s Deputies.
When they arrived at the jail to process stokes for intake into the facility, the money Stokes originally had on his person appeared to be missing.
Stokes said that Sheriff's Deputies had already collected it during the traffic seizure, but those Deputies said that was not true.
Correctional officers working at the Marion County Detention Center then began to notice that Stokes was literally giving birth to $20.00 bills, falling from his buttocks region
With some double layered gloves on and some lubricating oils, the correction officers were able to literally pull $1,090.00 in U.S. currency from Stokes’ ass.
The Sheriff's Office posted on their Facebook a message to local cashiers or anyone handling cash in the future, apologizing to them for putting images of where money may have been prior to it being spent into their heads.
Not only does Stokes now face multiple Felonies for the narcotics and attempted contraband into a lockdown facility charges, but he also had 7 month old child in the front passenger seat of his vehicle while he was trafficking drugs.
Stokes was arrested and charged with Smuggling Contraband into a Detention Facility, Trafficking Methamphetamine, Trafficking Heroin, Possession of Cocaine with the Intent to Sell, Manufacture or Deliver, Possession of Marijuana and Possession of Drug Equipment.
