Man Had Cocaine in Prosthetic Leg: Deputies

CHARLOTTE COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE

Alexis Ann Clancey, 20, Bradley Jordon Greus, 23, Donald Carlo Acquarelli, 25, Teal Lee Thomson, 22.

Four people were arrested Thursday after being accused of drug possession and among them was a man who had cocaine in his prosthetic leg and a woman who had a hypodermic needle hidden in her buttocks, the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office said.

The drugs were discovered after a sheriff’s deputy in Charlotte County stopped a car for not having brake lights. But as the deputy searched the car with the occupants’ consent, they found cocaine, morphine and hydromorphone pills.

Bradley Jordon Greus, 23, who wore a prosthetic leg, was asked if he had anything hidden in it, and he said he had a small bag of cocaine in it and handed it over, authorities said. He was charged with possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The driver, Alexis Ann Clancey, 20, admitted to having a hydromorphine pill in her wallet but while the sheriff was searching, she jumped in the car, grabbed her wallet and quickly pulled out a pill and swallowed it, authorities said.

Authorities said they attempted to stop her from swallowing it but were unsuccessful.

Later, as deputies continued searching the car, they found five hypodermic needles containing a clear liquid that tested positive for opiates. Clancey said the needles were hers and that she used them to shoot opiates.

“Clancey also told deputies she had another hypodermic needle hidden in her butt; she was removed from the patrol car and produced a needle from her backside and gave it to the deputy,” the sheriff’s office said in a release.

Clancey was charged with possession of opiates, possession of drug paraphernalia, and resisting an officer.

Meanwhile, Teal Lee Thomson, 22, was found with a plastic baggie in her bra that contained morphine and hydromorphone pills, authorities said. She was charged with possession of morphine, possession of hydromorphone, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Donald Carlo Acquarelli, 25, was charged with possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia. Acquarelli and Greus both said they had just bought the cocaine from someone in a Wal-Mart parking lot.

Acquarelli, Thomson and Clancey all posted bond and were released; Greus remains in jail on $6,500 bond.

It wasn't known if any of them had attorneys.
