A Boynton Beach man is facing a charge of smuggling contraband into a detention facility after he brought a syringe hidden between his buttocks into the Boynton Beach Police Department, according to an arrest report.
Tomas Xavier Collier was stopped by police Friday night after an officer saw him driving erratically on the 800 block of Seacrest Boulevard, the report said.
Police found prescription drugs and heroin in the car.
After being taken to the police department for processing, Collier was asked if he was carrying anything that the officer may have missed.
Collier said he had a syringe between his buttocks.
“I had Collier retrieve the syringe from his buttocks,” the officer wrote in his report.
Collier, 20, is facing two counts of possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and one count each of possession of drug equipment and smuggling contraband into a detention facility.
He was released from the Palm Beach County Jail Saturday after posting a $9,000 bond.
