Bristol Twp. police: Drug dealer had 5 grams of crack in genital area
Posted: Thursday, May 9, 2013
Bristol Township police expected to find a gun on a Philadelphia man.
Instead they said they found something unexpected in an unexpected place — five grams of crack cocaine hidden in his genital area.
Police responded to an apartment complex in the 3000 block of Ford Road on Monday morning after someone reported seeing a man identified as Dennis Davis Jr., 27, with a suspected handgun.
When police arrived at the complex, they met with Davis. He didn’t have a gun, but he did have seven small blue baggies containing suspected crack cocaine and $162, according to police.
Davis was taken into custody and transported to police headquarters where he was told that an officer would be conducting a “thorough” search of him. When he learned that, Davis reached into his pants and removed a plastic bag containing suspected crack cocaine from his genital area, police said.
The bag contained about 5 grams of suspected crack cocaine worth at least $500, Bristol Township Lt. Terry Hughes said.
In an interview with police, Davis reportedly admitted selling drugs, purchasing the suspected crack cocaine on him for about $315. He intended to return a profit of $700 to $800, according to a probable cause affidavit. He also told police he had no other income other than drug dealing.
Davis was arraigned before Bristol Township District Judge Joanne Kline on manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver and related charges. He was sent to Bucks County prison in lieu of 10 percent of $100,000 bail.
