Belly Roll=Drug Crime

Belly Roll=Drug Crime

Belly rolls concealed drugs in a recent Florida arrest.

As part of a 10-hour crime suppression effort by the Volusia County Sheriff's Department, the vehicle that passenger Christopher Mitchell was riding in was stopped because Mitchell wasn't wearing a seat belt, according to the Department's Public Information Officer Gary Davidson.

Davidson explains that once the car was pulled over, Mitchell - who weighed 450 pounds - claimed his stomach was too large to fit into a seat belt. Officers quickly observed how nervous Mitchell and the driver, Keithian Roberts, appeared. Acting on their suspicions, they brought a K-9 drug-sniffing dog to the vehicle. They soon found 23 grams of marijuana hidden under Mitchell's belly fat. Officer also found cocaine, a semi-automatic handgun and more than $7,000 in cash in the car. Both men were arrested for acommiting drug crimes and Mitchell was cited for not wearing his seat belt. .

The crime suppression operation targeted crime and traffic violations in the Deltona area. Its purpose was to "abate, discourage and displace crime," according to the Sheriff's Department. Efforts included combating "property crimes, illegal drugs and dangerous driving offenses, such as speeding, DUI, running traffic lights and stop signs and reckless driving." Volusia County expects to have more of these operations this summer.
