Police: Man goes to jail with drugs in underwear

Detention officers found a razor blade and 1.9 grams of crack cocaine in the underpants of a freshly admitted jail inmate Sunday night, police reported today.
Salisbury Police reported Antonio Montreal Chambers, 22, of 1614 Standish St., Apt. 2A, was arrested after officers pulled over a truck in which he was a passenger for driving with its headlights off.
Chambers and the driver acted nervous, the report said, and officers were given permission to search.
As an officer patted him down, Chambers admitted to having his cousin’s gun in his pants pocket, and because Chambers is a convicted felon, police charged him with possession of a firearm by a felon and carrying a concealed pistol or gun, the report said. He was given a $5,000 secured bond.
At the Rowan County jail, a detention officer searched Chambers, finding a set of digital scales in his coat pocket and the drugs and razor blade in his underwear, according to the police report.
Chambers was taken back to the magistrate’s office and charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and felony possession of a controlled substance on a penal institution premise. He received an additional $2,500 secured bond.
