A man from Key West, Florida was arrested on Wednesday after he was busted with a cocaine-stuffed Cookie Monster doll used to conceal over 300 grams of the drug.

Camus McNair, 39, was pulled over after midnight when a deputy noticed a black Dodge with an obscured license plate and windows tinted so dark that the deputy could not see anything inside of the vehicle.

McNair rolled down his window, and the deputy detected the scent of marijuana radiating from the car, causing a subsequent search of the vehicle that uncovered a backpack containing a blue Cookie Monster doll from Sesame Street, The New York Post reported.

The deputy then realized that the stuffed animal weighed more than a typical doll. He then discovered a slit cut into the doll, which had two packages of 314 grams of cocaine inside. Paperwork recovered from inside the bag also revealed that it belonged to McNair.

McNair has been charged with cocaine trafficking and possession of drug equipment and remains in custody on $7,000 bond in Marathon.
