I Dunno

When Robert Lee Thomas Jr., 46, was stopped by an Indian River County Sheriff’s deputy in Vero Beach, Fla., he allegedly tossed a loaded pistol magazine aside. Deputies searched him and found crack cocaine in his pants pocket. Thomas then claimed the pants he was wearing were not his, although everything in his pockets — other than the drugs — were his. Meanwhile, Palm Beach County, Fla., sheriff’s deputies were booking Amanda M. Alvarez, 21, into jail on charges of possession of drug paraphernalia. As jailers searched her, they found a small plastic bag tucked under her left breast. Alvarez claimed she did not know the bag was there; the contents tested positive for heroin. Two charges were added to her list: possession of heroin, and introduction of contraband into a detention facility — a felony. And when Dusty Rae Ingram, 38, was being booked into the Okaloosa County Jail, jailers found a plastic bag with pills tucked into her genitals. Ingram said she normally keeps the pills in her purse, and doesn’t know how they got into her genitals. (RC/Stuart News, WPBF Palm Beach, Northwest Florida Daily News) ...I sure “don’t know” how any of them expected their excuses to work.
