A man tried to hide a bag of drugs inside his body cavity while Citrus county deputies were putting him under arrest late Thursday evening, according to Citrus County Sheriff’s Office.

Jason Williams, 36, was pulled over for speeding, according to the CCSO report. He was going 64 miles per hour in 55-mile-per-hour zone in Floral City, deputies said.

A Citrus K-9 conducted a free exterior air sniff and alerted on Williams’ black Ford Explorer. When Citrus deputies started searching it, they found a broken glass methamphetamine pipe, empty dime baggies, rolling papers and a narcotics ledger with information of prescription drug sales.

Deputies put Williams in handcuffs and while they were searching him, he managed to push a bag of drugs into his body cavity, deputies said.

He was taken to the Citrus County Jail and charged with resisting officer without violence, possession of drug paraphernalia and tampering with evidence. 

His bond is set at $7,000.
