SALINA, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas man being held on a probation violation is now accused of smuggling drugs into jail inside his artificial leg.

The Saline County sheriff’s office says deputies became concerned when the 33-year-old man slurred his speech while complaining Sunday about missing breakfast. Authorities said tests showed the Salina man had been taking drugs.

Sheriff Glen Kochanowski says the inmate is accused of hiding prescription drugs and methamphetamine inside his prosthesis.

The man had been taken into custody in early March on four suspected probation violations. Prosecutors will now decide whether to charge him with drug offenses as well.
