OGDENSBURG -- A man was jailed after 78 baggies of crack cocaine were found in his rectum, according to Ogdensburg City Police.
Dejuan J. Butler, 22, Lumberton, N.C., was charged with sale of a controlled substance in the third degree following a traffic stop shortly after 2:20 p.m. Friday by the narcotics enforcement unit of the Ogdensburg police.
Butler, who also goes by the name "D" and David. J. Barksdale, was identified as an individual from whom the Narcotics Enforcement Unit had a controlled buy of crack cocaine from, police said.
Once Butler's true name was learned by police, it was discovered that Butler is wanted by the North Carolina Department of Corrections for absconding from parole, breaking and entering, kidnapping and robbery, police said.

Police then discovered a large bag of individually packaged baggies of crack cocaine. In all, there were 78 baggies of crack cocaine, which were secreted in Butler’s rectum, police said.
Due to the use of a false name and the crack found on his person, Butler was additionally charged with false personation and criminal possession of a controlled substance, police said.
Butler is being held at the police department pending arraignment, police said.
