No Charges For Inmate Who Denied Owning Syringes Found In His Rectum During Strip Search

The Florida Man who denied ownership of three syringes found in his rectum during a jail strip search will not face criminal charges in connection with the keistered contraband, according to court records.

Wesley Dasher Scott, 40, was busted in early-January on separate warrants charging him with possessing marijuana and drugs without a prescription. While being frisked by an arresting officer, Scott denied having any illegal items hidden on (or in) his body.

However, during a subsequent strip search at the county lockup, Scott "removed three syringes from his rectum and provided them" to a jailer. But while he had fished the items from inside his body, Scott claimed the syringes “were not his.”

Seen above, Scott did not reveal who purportedly owned the needles (or where he supposedly found them). In addition to the existing drug counts, Scott was charged with introducing contraband into a correctional facility, a felony.

But prosecutors subsequently opted not to pursue the contraband charge against Scott. The brief declination notice came as Scott agreed to a plea deal on the pot and prescription drug charges. Scott was sentenced to 40 days in jail and ordered to pay $550 in fines in connection with the misdemeanor convictions.

Scott was arrested again two weeks ago for allegedly swiping merchandise worth $56.51 from a Walmart near his residence in Largo, a Tampa suburb. Scott, who spent about 20 hours in custody before posting a $150 cash bond, had no drug paraphernalia inside any body orifice when apprehended.
