The girlfriend of actor Cameron Douglas was arrested Monday for allegedly trying to smuggle heroin to him in an electric toothbrush, court papers show.
Kelly Sott was busted after passing the toothbrush to Douglas while he was under home detention following a court hearing on his drug charges. She was arrested at the Hotel Gansevoort in Manhattan where she was staying.
Douglas, 30, the son of actor Michael Douglas, was arrested
at the same hotel last week and faces a methamphetamine-dealing charge.
Douglas had been on house arrest at the New York home of his stepmother, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and went to court for an appearance Monday. The home is being monitored by a private security company.
According to a federal complaint, a security guard overheard a phone conversation in which Douglas asked for a toothbrush. Douglas "appeared to be very concerned about when the toothbrush would be delivered," the complaint says. According to another guard, Douglas had already been provided with a toothbrush a few days earlier.
Later that day, Sott arrived and delivered a black bag containing various items including an electric toothbrush. One of the guards searched the battery compartment of the toothbrush and discovered approximately "19 glassines containing a brownish substance that appeared to be heroin," the complaint says. A field test revealed it to be about seven grams of heroin, according to the complaint.
After Sott's arrest, a search of the hotel room where she was staying also uncovered other glassines with what appeared to be heroin and small amounts of suspected crystal methamphetamine and marijuana.
