Martin County Florida law enforcement officers made a surprising discovery while processing 28 year-old arrestee Ramon Blair. Blair had been fingered by the ubiquitous reliable, confidential informant as riding around town with $100 worth of crack cocaine on his person.
According to affidavits filed by the Martin County Sheriff’s Office, Blair was riding in a white, 4-door, hubcapless Pontiac accompanied by an unidentified woman. When stopped, Blair has that tell-tale white powder just north of the philtrum in the right nostril and looked for all the world like the drug possessor he would eventually be factually proven to be — allegedly, of course. Blair was arrested after helpfully advising that the powder didn’t need to be tested as it was cocaine after all.
Lo and behold, the world was full of reliable and confidential informants that day as one magically appeared on the scene to advise that Blair had another $300 worth of crack on his person somewhere. The arresting deputy was unable to find it, but more savvy folks at the jail knew the drill. Being asked to disrobe, squat, and cough in the jail cell, the offending contraband dropped into the laps of law enforcement, so to speak, coming conveniently packaged in a white paper towel. The talkative Blair confirmed the newly discovered “rocks,” like the powder before, were cocaine as well.
Blair is being held without bond on charges of possession of cocaine. No word yet on whether the unidentified lady driver was wearing red or answered to the name Anna Sage.
