A central Florida man was released from jail after test results confirmed that white powder found in his vehicle was not cocaine after all. And a Florida man named Karlos Cashe is, in fact, a handyman.

Safariland is the same company used by Orlando police when they arrested a man after doughnut glaze tested positive for meth.

Karlos Cashe was pulled over by Oviedo police in March after officers noticed he was driving without headlights.

It took almost three months for lab test results, which were negative for cocaine. He was pulled over almost a mile later.

First, Cashe was put into handcuffs when an officer noted that he was on probation for a marijuana and cocaine charge from 2015 and was passed his court-ordered curfew.

But apparently, they didn't believe him.

'I know for a fact (that) it's drywall because I'm a handyman, ' Cashe said. The Florida man was facing nothing more than a minor traffic ticket, save for the fact that there seemed to be some powdery white substance in his vehicle.

North Korea denies torturing USA detainee Otto Warmbier
As for North Korea itself? He had been accused of stealing a propaganda poster and was serving a sentence of hard labor. Warmbier's death has caused furor among the American political establishment, including with US President Donald Trump.

He was denied bond because of his probation, and sat in a cell for 90 days until results on the powder came back from a laboratory: negative for all drugs.

When asked if there would be any internal investigation, FOX 35 was told there would not be.

Oviedo police told News 6 that prosecutors made a decision to only send the suspected cocaine for Florida Department of Law Enforcement lab testing.

Police said if they have probable cause for cocaine they will send someone to jail.

"I had no cocaine, I had no drugs", said Cashe, who has since been released from prison.

According to the report, the curfew violation was also a mistake, the State Attorney's Office also dropped the Marijuana charges.
