Two plastic baggies containing crack cocaine and a single blue pill were found between the buttocks of a man during a Murfreesboro Police traffic stop.
33-Year old Marcus Hardy was pulled over on Bridge Avenue after police noticed he was not wearing a seat belt. A report that WGNS obtained on Tuesday shows that Detective Chris Phillips also had prior knowledge that Hardy had a revoked license.
During a consented search of Hardy, Phillips said that he felt a bulge between Hardy's buttocks. The report went on to state, "Shortly after, Mr. Hardy voluntarily retrieved two plastic bags of crack cocaine and one blue pill from his buttocks."
Hardy was arrested and charged with "Felony Possession of a Schedule Two Drug" and "Driving on a Revoked License." He will appear in court in January of 2016. He was booked under a $3,000 bond and later released from the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center.
Two cell phones that were in the vehicle that Hardy was driving were turned over to police and placed in the care of the Murfreesboro Police Gang Unit.
