PUNTA GORDA, Fla. (AP) - Jail officials have found pot, pills and tobacco in an inmate's rectum.
A Charlotte County Sheriff's corrections officer became suspicious when he saw 22-year-old Salvatore James Zambuto walking awkwardly Wednesday and then ask to use the restroom. Authorities followed Zambuto and found him on the bathroom floor with latex glove bags filled with pot, pills and tobacco.
Zambuto was arrested earlier Wednesday on two outstanding warrants. A detective coincidentally spotted him slouching down in the passenger seat of a car and pulled the vehicle over. The detective found pills and syringes in the car.
Zambuto was charged with introduction of contraband into a corrections facility and several drug possession charges. He is being held without bond.
