Following the discovery, the suspect, identified as Patrick Florence, told officers the drugs wrapped around his private part “were not his”, New York Post reported. The Saturday incident occurred after a car Florence was riding in was pulled over. The police report said the driver, who was driving without any lights, was also apprehended for DUI and marijuana possession.
A subsequent search of the car uncovered a gun under Florence’s seat and the contraband wrapped around his manhood. But Deputy Levi Blake stated Florence claimed: “the package wrapped around his penis was not his.”
Florence, however, did not identify the supposed owner of the drugs. He has since been slapped with four felony drugs and weapons charges.
Florence has been arrested almost 20 times by Pinellas County sheriffs for drug-related offenses, according to public records cited by New York Post.
