Charges: Man Hid Weed, Oxycodone In Underwear

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 29-year-old man has been charged after police say he hid a bag of marijuana and a bag of Oxycodone in his underwear.

Darnell Cleveland Harris, of St. Louis Park, was in a vehicle that was pulled over by police around 2 a.m. last week, after it failed to signal a turn and then failed to make a complete stop at a stop sign.

When the officer approached Harris, he said he could smell a strong odor of burnt marijuana coming from the vehicle. Harris, who was sitting in the backseat of the vehicle, allegedly told the officer, “Yeah, we smoked some weed in here.”

The officer asked Harris to step out of the vehicle and began to pat him down. He noticed what felt like two wrapped items on Harris’ leg.

According to the complaint, Harris then said, “I ain’t gonna lie to you, I’ve got a misdemeanor amount of marijuana in my underwear.”

Police say two bags then fell out of Harris’ pant leg — one containing a leafy green substance and one that contained what was later determined to be Oxycodone.

Harris faces a felony charge of a controlled substance crime in the fifth degree.

    You would think these idiots would learn. I work over N and lately they have Minneapolis PD and the Sheriff’s dept Patrolling the streets and the other day the sheriff stopped a car in our parking lot. come to find out the reason was for the passenger tipped up a 40 oz right in front of the cop.. The driver had warrants and there was no insurance on the car.. Driver went to jail car got towed passenger got kicked out with a open bottle ticket.. Lesson learned do not tip drinks run stop sign’s run red lights or anything else when you’re illegal WHEN WILL PEOPLE LEARN ??????

    Local News comes across as Tattle Tale-y sometimes — big deal if a black guy got arrested for having weed and some prescription drugs in his crotch.

    I wonder if this ever happens in Oakland our South Cental LA? Better yet — Chicago!

    Saint Lous Park cops must be bored or something.
