A Florida man who was riding in the passenger-side seat of a vehicle that was pulled over early Sunday told the officer that the cocaine powder on his nose didn’t belong to him, according to police.
Fabricio Jimenez, 20, had been riding in the car that an officer pulled around 4:30 a.m. in suburban Tampa. The deputy who pulled over the vehicle that Fabricio Jimenez was riding in said she “immediately noticed that he had a white powdery substance on his nose.”
A swab test came back positive for cocaine, officials said. Deputies said they found a small bag of cocaine on Jimenez and 250 grams of marijuana and 13 Xanax pills in the car. Jimenez was arrested on drug charges, police said.
