A man has been charged after he was busted with a kilogram of cocaine stashed in his pants.
Police made the shock discovery during a dramatic arrest of the man at an industrial shed at Heatherbrae in NSW yesterday.
Officers from the Northern Region Domestic Violence High-Risk Offender team and the Port Stephens-Hunter Proactive Crime Team attended the shed around 12.30pm as part of inquires following a domestic-related incident at a home in East Maitland at the weekend.

Upon their arrival, the man allegedly jumped out of a side window in an attempt to evade police.
“The 31-year-old man was arrested a short time later when police noticed a large package hidden inside the man’s shorts,” NSW police said.
The package was removed and found to contain 1kg of cocaine, which was seized for forensic examination.
A crime scene was then established and a search warrant was executed at the industrial property, where police located motorcycles, a car, methylamphetamine, cash, mobile phones and knuckle dusters.
The man has since been charged with five offences including supply large commercial quantity prohibited drug, possess prohibited drug, attempt stalk/intimidate intend fear of harm (domestic) and deal with proceeds of crime.
Police say investigations are continuing and further charges are expected to be laid.
