Bag of cocaine 'shot out' of suspect's body at St. Lucie County gas station when he relaxed, deputies say
ST. LUCIE COUNTY — A 30-year-old man was arrested Thursday on a host of charges after a bag of cocaine “shot out” of his backside in a gas station, according to an affidavit released Friday.
Investigators said they got a tip that cocaine was being transported in a brown Cadillac in the area of Interstate 95 and Midway Road, and investigators found the vehicle Thursday morning at a gas station at Midway and Glades Cut-Off roads.
The affidavit gave this account:
A man was pumping gas into the vehicle, and a drug sniffing dog smelled narcotics in the vehicle and the area where the man, identified as Warren Leonard Wiley, stood. A search of Wiley turned up a crumpled dollar bill with cocaine in it.
“Wiley was then escorted to the men’s room for a more detailed search,” the affidavit states. “While being escorted, Wiley dropped his shorts in the middle of the store stating, ‘I don’t have nothing.’ ”
Wiley’s backside appeared “clenched tight” as if he was hiding something. While walking, his backside relaxed and a clear bag with about 22 grams of cocaine in it “shot out” onto the store’s floor.
“Wiley then kicked back with his foot trying to kick the bag back stating again, ‘I don’t have nothing,’ ” the affidavit states.
Investigators said they found a .38 caliber revolver loaded with five cartridges in his car’s engine compartment that was reported stolen in November 2007.
Sheriff’s investigators arrested Wiley, listed as an unemployed Palm Coast resident, on charges including possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of cocaine with intent to sell, possession of cocaine, carrying a concealed firearm, escape, criminal mischief, resisting arrest without violence, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of stolen firearm.
