Dayton Police: Crack Cocaine Found in Man's Belly Button
DAYTON -- Two men are facing drug charges after police say they found crack cocaine in the belly button of one of then men.
Dayton police say they stopped the men while driving away from a suspected drug house early Monday morning on South Findlay Street near South McGee Street in Dayton. The S-10 in which they were driving didn't have a front license plate, officers said, prompting the traffic stop.
A K-9 unit was called, and the canine Thor alerted to the presence of drugs.
During the search of the vehicle, officers said they found a red crack pipe and used syringe in the roof of the truck. The liner of the roof had been torn back and was loose.
The Dayton Police officers searched the men, and say they found a baggie of crack cocaine in 38-year-old Alex Jamison-Smith's belly button.
The other occupant of the vehicle, Guy Loeliger, was cited for drug abuse instruments and drug paraphernalia.
When Loeliger asked police what was found in the truck, and the officers told him, he reportedly said, "I will take the blame for the syringe but I have no idea about the crack pipe."
A marijuana joint also was found in a pack of cigarettes, which had been on Jamison-Smith's lap during the officers' initial contact with the suspect.
Jamison-Smith also faces a minor misdemeanor citation for possession of marijuana.
