Police: Spencer man hid crack in vehicle doorframe, buttocks
Authorities say a Spencer man tried to hide drugs in the doorframe of his car and admitted to hiding drugs in his buttocks. The Salisbury Police drug unit stopped a vehicle in the intersection of North Long Street and Bringle Ferry Road for a fictitious tag. Jerome Raynail Allison, 28, of the 1000 block of Elizabeth Avenue, was charged with felony possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a controlled substance.
The officer asked if he could search the vehicle and Allison gave consent for the officer to search. The officer noticed along the weather stripping of the doorframe there were crack rocks stuck in the rubber. Police Capt. Shelia Lingle said it appeared Allison tried to toss the drugs out the window, but it stuck.
The officer asked if there were other substances in the vehicle. Allison admitted to having crack rocks hidden in his buttocks. He was given a $1,500 secured bond and has since been released from the Rowan County Detention Center.
In 2008, Allison was convicted of resisting an officer and operating a vehicle without a license. In 2006, he was convicted of speeding to elude arrest and drug possession. He has also been convicted of resisting arrest in 2002 and 2004.
