Elderly man found with multiple narcotics hidden in underwear

MARTIN COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - What started as a traffic stop ends with a nine-time convicted felon losing his underwear...literally.

Martin County Sheriff's Deputies were not convinced that the odd bulge in the pants of 63-year-old Ben Smith was normal.       

When Smith pulled large amounts of cash from his pants pockets, the questionable bulge was still there! It turns out, Mr. Smith had 10 baggies of rock cocaine, 18 baggies of powder cocaine, 16 baggies of crack cocaine, and 45 methamptheamine capsules stuffed in his underwear.

Mr. Smith, who is currently on probation, was arrested and charged with several counts of possession of narcotics with the intent to sell.
