A Miami man was stopped in the Keys, and was trafficking drugs in his pants, police say
A Miami man was jailed Tuesday night after MPs said he had more than 2 ounces of drugs in his pants during a traffic obstruction in the Middle Keys.
Travis Bernard Holton, 44, was arrested for an amphetamine trafficking crime.
Deputy Christopher VanHoose stopped Holton, who was driving a Ford Fusion, at 9:33 p.m. on US 1 at mile marker 59 on Grassy Key.

Holton's license plate light was off, said Adam Linhardt, spokesman for the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
Sheriff's K-9 office, which is called Coral, alerted MPs that there were drugs in the car, Linhardt said.
"Holton said he had no illegal contraband in the car and agreed to a vehicle search as well as a search for himself," said Linhardt.
But when Holton was asked to expand his stance so MPs could search him, two plastic bags fell from his pants onto the tarmac, Linhardt said.
The bags contained a crystal-like substance that tested positive for amphetamines with a total weight of 58.5 grams in field trials, the police said.
Holton said the bags contained "two ounces of molly," police reported.
Holton was taken to jail. He was detained in Plantation Key Prison Wednesday afternoon.
