Tampa police say man took kids to drug deal, hid cocaine in his buttocks

TAMPA — Police say a 30-year-old man took his children with him to a cocaine deal Friday night and then tried to hide the drugs in his buttocks.

About 10:40 p.m., police used an informer to set up a drug buy with Leroy Filmore at the Oasis Motel, 6720 N Nebraska Ave.

When he arrived in the parking lot, officers boxed in his car.

Police said Filmore then tried to hide drugs inside his buttocks. When officers strip-searched him, they say they found 14 grams of cocaine in a plastic bag.

Filmore, 3624 E Powhatan Ave., was arrested on charges of cocaine possession with intent to sell. He remains at the Hillsborough County Jail without bail.

His children were left in the custody of their grandmother, and police contacted the Department of Children and Families to investigate.
