(RNN) - A Florida man arrested and charged with drug trafficking tried to hide his cash stash in his buttocks.

Didn’t work.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office said they stopped Pattreon Stokes for speeding and the deputy smelled marijuana.

The police searched the car and said they found 197 grams of meth, rock cocaine, four grams of heroin, a scale, a small amount of pot and large amount of money on his person.

When they arrived at the jail, the money Stokes had on him was missing, the sheriff’s office said in an August Facebook post.

He said the deputies had already collected it.

That’s when they noticed $20 bills falling from his buttock area.

“After a necessary but undesirable process for everyone involved, MCSO detention deputies located $1,090 located in Stokes’ rectum,” the department said.

“Judging from Stokes’ mug shot, he looks pretty ‘bummed’ about the whole situation,” the post said.

The department apologized to all cashiers in Marion County and said if they chose to don gloves as they did their daily duties, they would understand.

They added that Stokes had a 7-month-old child in the front passenger seat of his vehicle when he was apprehended.

He was charged with bunches of things, none of them good.
