MONROE COUNTY, FLORIDA – Cops in Florida apparently found that C is for cocaine, too.
A Key West man was busted Wednesday when he was caught with more than 300 grams of cocaine hidden inside a Cookie Monster doll, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.
Camus McNair, 39, was pulled over just after midnight when a deputy spotted a black Dodge with its license plate obscured and windows tinted so dark that the deputy could not see inside.
McNair rolled down his window and the responding deputy could smell marijuana emanating from the vehicle, prompting a subsequent search of the car that turned up a backpack containing a blue Cookie Monster doll from the Sesame Street franchise.
The deputy then noticed that the doll weighed more than a typical stuffed animal. He then found a slit cut into the doll, which contained two packages totaling 314 grams of cocaine. Paperwork found inside the bag also indicated that it belonged to McNair, who was charged with cocaine trafficking, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.
McNair was charged with cocaine trafficking and drug equipment possession and remains held on $7,000 bond at a jail in Marathon, the Miami Herald reports.
