A Florida man was busted after he allegedly tried to smuggle drugs into jail using his prosthetic leg, according to a report.

37-year-old Keith Adams is accused of using his fake leg to try and sneak in a gram of fentanyl and Xanax pills inside a Pinellas County jail on Saturday, says The Smoking Gun, referencing a police report.

Adams was arrested that morning in the Tampa Bay area as the passenger of a vehicle during a traffic stop. Police say Adams was "sitting atop a glass pipe which contained a thick white residue which field tested positive for cocaine."

He was arrested and charged with cocaine possession and resisting arrest. Adams, who uses a prosthetic leg, was "specifically asked before transport to the jail if anything was concealed in his leg, and warned bringing it into the jail would be an additional charge."

Police say Adams told them he did not have anything in his leg, but a subsequent search at the jail resulted in the discovery of the additional narcotics.

He now faces three felony charges and one misdemeanor. Adams has two other separate pending narcotic cases for his name.
