MARATHON, Fla. — A stash of cocaine hidden inside a Cookie Monster doll has landed a Florida man in jail on a drug charge.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release Wednesday that 39-year-old Camus McNair was arrested after a traffic stop in the Florida Keys involving a car with heavily tinted windows and an obscured license plate.

A deputy smelled the odor of marijuana after pulling over McNair’s car, the sheriff’s office said, then the deputy searched a backpack in the car and found the Cookie Monster doll. The deputy noticed the doll seemed heavier than it should and discovered that a slit had been cut into it.

Authorities say about 11 ounces (314 grams) of cocaine was found inside the doll. McNair was jailed, with bail set at $7,000. Jail records did not list an attorney for him.
