A 33-year-old man arriving for a court appearance on a meth charge in Washington state was slammed with an additional felony possession charge when a security pat-down allegedly turned up a bag of the drug in his pants pocket, the Kitsap Sun reports.
Following standard criminal procedures, the Bremerton man was being booked and released from the Kitsap County jail before making his original court appearance.
During a security check at the jail, a guard allegedly found the meth in the unidentified man's right pocket, according to court documents.
He was then booked into the county jail on the new felony possession charge, the newspaper says.
