Christopher Mitchell and his associate, Keithian Roberts, were pulled over last Friday in Osteen, Florida, according to.
Although the two men were pulled over because Mitchell was not wearing a seat belt, there were other possessions that were concealed in the unexpected hiding places within the car.
Mitchell, who weighs 450-pounds and is also known as “Fat Boy,” told the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office deputy that he was too fat to wear a seatbelt, arrest records show.
When the deputies felt that Mitchell and Roberts seemed quite nervous during the arrest, a K-9 was called to sniff for drugs. The dog reportedly found illegal substances in possibly the most unexpected place, according to the WKMG Local 6 News reports.
Mitchell had stuffed marijuana underneath a roll of his stomach fat. The deputies searched Mitchell, who also goes by “Biggie” and reportedly found 23 grams of marijuana hidden under his fat, according to
NY Daily News.
Police also found a handgun in the middle console and $7,000 in cash stuffed in a tube sock.
The suspects reportedly tried to hide the smell of drugs with carpet freshener and scented dryer sheets, but their attempts had failed.
Keithian Roberts, who was driving the car, was arrested for possession of cocaine.
Mitchell was convicted for conspiracy to traffic cocaine back in 2002, but records show he has gained about 200 pounds since then.
