Lawrenceville Man Charged With Smuggling Pot Into Jail

LAWRENCEVILLE -- A Lawrenceville man already facing drug charges had another tacked on last week after deputies say they found marijuana concealed on his body as he was being admitted to Gwinnett County jail.

Sean Gregory Crosby, 29, was picked up by Norcross police officers Thursday on drug possession charges before being transported to the jail, sheriff's department spokeswoman Stacey Bourbonnais said.

"When we searched him he was trying to conceal additional marijuana," she said.

According to arrest warrants, less than an ounce of pot was concealed "in his butt cheeks" and under his genitalia. Crosby was charged with an additional count of "bringing marijuana past the guard line," a felony.

Jail records show he was released on $11,865 bond.
