Suspect Denies Owning Crack Near His Crack
Drug stash was hidden beneath private parts
MARCH 23--While admitting that marijuana found in his car belonged to him, a Florida man disavowed ownership of crack cocaine that was “concealed beneath his genitals,” according to a police report.
Police in Largo last night pulled over a vehicle being driven by Deondre Lumpkin, 23, for a traffic infraction, records show. When Officer Michael Vegenski approached the auto, he “detected the strong odor of burnt cannabis emanating from the vehicle.”
Lumpkin reportedly copped to previously smoking pot and “consented to a search of his person and vehicle.”
Officer Vegenski first located an envelope containing marijuana and five cell phones. The cop then sought to search Lumpkin, whose rap sheet includes prior weapons and narcotics arrests.
As he was being patted down, Lumpkin “would not widen his stance and was clinching his buttocks,” the cop noted. So the suspect was transported to police headquarters for “a more thorough search.”
But before that secondary search, Lumpkin “admitted to having crack cocaine concealed beneath his genitals.” However, the suspect wanted to make something clear: While the pot was his, Lumpkin “denied that the cocaine belonged to him.”
Sadly, Lumpkin (seen above) did not say who owned the crack, or explain how the drug ended up nestled behind his genitals.
Lumpkin, charged with multiple felony drug counts, was released from custody early this morning after posting $41,150 bond. (1 page)
