LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - A man found himself arrested on one drug charge outside the Limestone County dispatch center Wednesday night. He got more charges after deputies searched him during booking.

The arresting deputy said he was standing outside the dispatch center when a car pulled into the parking space in front of him. He said a woman got out of the car and asked directions to dispatch but walked away when he pointed to the door.

A man and two sleeping children were also in the car.

The deputy said he smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from the car. But at that point, the woman got back in and drove away.

He said the car returned to the dispatch parking lot a few minutes later while he was still standing outside. This time, the female wasn't in it.

He contacted another deputy at the jail. They both acknowledged the smell of marijuana, according to the arrest report.

The deputy asked the man to step out of the car and searched him. He noticed a plastic bag of marijuana under the driver's seat, according to the report. The drugs were allegedly packaged into four smaller bags.

The man, identified as Raymond Watkins, was arrested on a charge of first-degree possession of marijuana.

Deputies say they found more drugs hidden in Watkins' rectum when they searched him during booking. They said they found a plastic bag containing a white substance in six smaller bags. The white substance tested positive for cocaine.

The report states the first bundle of marijuana weighed 19.5 grams, the second marijuana bundle weighed 31 grams and the cocaine weighed 6.5 grams.

Watkins was additionally charged with possession of a controlled substance and second-degree promoting prison contraband.
