A stash of cocaine hidden inside a Cookie Monster doll has landed a Florida man in jail on a drug charge.
Camus McNair, 39, was arrested after a traffic stop involving a car with heavily tinted windows and an obscured license plate in the Florida Keys, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.
When McNair rolled down the window on the Dodge he was driving, Deputy Orey Swilley smelled marijuana.

That prompted Swilley to search McNair’s vehicle where he found a backpack with a Sesame Street Cookie Monster doll inside of it.
Swilley noticed that the doll seemed heavier than it should be.
Upon seeing a slit that was cut into the blue furry doll, Swilley found a pair of packages inside of it that contained cocaine in plastic baggies.

McNair has been charged with cocaine trafficking and possession of drug equipment.
The 39-year-old was booked into the Monroe County jail where he is being held on $7,000 bail.
It’s unclear McNair has an attorney or when he will appear in court.
