LORAIN – Police charged a man with smuggling cocaine into the Lorain City Jail on Tuesday after they watched him attempt to conceal something in his pants after a traffic stop.

Antonio Dillard, 34, of Lorain, was charged with conveyance of drugs into jail, possession of cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia and two traffic charges around 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday near the Daily Mart at 1442 Oberlin Ave., Lorain.

According to Lorain Police Sgt. Tom Nimon, police saw Dillard making what looked like a “hand to hand” drug transaction near the Daily Mart. Dillard got into a car after the transaction and began to drive away.

Police followed Dillard in the car and pulled him over for a traffic stop near the Daily Mart after he failed to signal a turn, Nimon said. Dillard looked like he was trying to conceal something in his pants as police walked to his car, according to Nimon.

Police brought Dillard to jail after they found out he was driving without a valid license. Dillard was fidgeting when he was taken into custody, prompting police to do a strip search, Nimon said. Following the search, police found 4.9 grams of cocaine concealed in his derriere.

Dillard was issued additional charges of conveyance and possession for the cocaine.

He was being held at Lorain City Jail.
