(Scroll down for video) A drug dealer attempted to hide a large amount of money from police by hiding the cash in his rectum, according to police in Florida.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office said that in the early morning hours of Saturday, Deputy Calvin Batts conducted a traffic stop on a white Buick in the area of East Highway 40 and Baseline Road for speeding.

Upon making contact with the driver, 26-year-old Pattreon Stokes, Batts smelled the odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle.

Deputies searched the vehicle and found approximately 197 grams of Methamphetamine, Rock Cocaine and 4 grams of Heroin.

A scale was also located inside the vehicle.

Stokes also had a small amount of marijuana and a large amount of currency on him.

Stokes was arrested and taken to the Marion County Jail.

When they arrived at the jail, the money Stokes had appeared to be missing.

Stokes said that deputies had already collected it, but this was certainly not true.

Detention deputies then noticed something quite unusual.

They observed $20 bills falling from Stokes’ buttocks area.

After a necessary but undesirable process for everyone involved, Detention deputies located $1,090 in U.S. currency hidden in Stokes’ rectum.

“For all of our wonderful cashiers in Marion County, we apologize for giving you this terrible mental image today. If you choose to use gloves during your daily duties, we will understand,” police wrote on Facebook.

Police also warned: “Don’t put that in your mouth, you don’t know where it’s been!”

Stokes had a 7-month-old child in the front passenger seat of his vehicle while he was trafficking drugs.

Stokes was arrested and charged with smuggling contraband into a detention facility, trafficking methamphetamine, trafficking heroin, possession of cocaine with the intent to sell, manufacture or deliver, possession of marijuana and possession of drug equipment.
