DECATUR — A 34-year-old Decatur man was arrested Tuesday after police discovered he’d hidden a large amount of cocaine in his buttocks.
As Dewayne K. Fenderson traveled Tuesday from Indianapolis to Decatur on Interstate 72, Decatur police detective Chad Larner pulled the suspect’s vehicle over for obstructed front side windows.
During the traffic stop, Fenderson and his wife, gave officers permission to search the vehicle and his person, according to an arrest affidavit by Larner.
While officers searched Fenderson, Larner “detected a significant anomaly in the direct area between Fenderson’s buttocks,” he wrote.
After verbally noting his observation, Larner said Fenderson “admitted to having (28.4 grams of) cocaine in between his buttocks.”
Fenderson indicated he is a cocaine user, but Larner noted that the amount of cocaine in the suspect’s possession is consistent with the manufacturing and delivery of the controlled substance.
Larner added that the street value of 28.4 grams of cocaine is $2,800.
Fenderson was arrested on preliminary charges of unlawful possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.
He is being held on $30,000 bond in the Macon County Jail and is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday, May 8.
