Frank Coito (mug shot TCSO)

A Branson man has pleaded guilty to possession of drugs that were smuggled inside a jar of peanut butter two years ago.

UPS notified officers with the COMET drug task force on August 4, 2008, that they were in possession of a package containing drugs that was to be delivered to 24-year-old Frank Coito.

Taney County chief assistant prosecutor Chris Lebeck says the drug task force took possession of the package and discovered sixty blue pills of Oxycontin hidden inside a ziplock bag inside a jar of peanut butter. An undercover officer with COMET delivered the package to Coito that contained a cell phone charger, a can of green beans, a can of corn, and the jar of peanut butter with the drugs hidden inside of it.

At the residence officers confiscated drug paraphernalia and located a tracking slip for the package. As he was being arrested, Coito told the COMET officer posing as a UPS driver, “You have got to be kidding me. You don’t know what I have been through trying to get that package.”

Coito, who pleaded guilty without a plea agreement, is scheduled to be sentenced October 21st.
