TACO BELL WOULD NOT ENDORSE THIS: Thursday morning at about 2 AM, Officer Joshua Glass stopped a black Honda Accord near Road 68/ Burden for a minor equipment violation. Things got interesting when he saw small baggies of white powder in the center console, which the driver quickly set a cell phone on top of.

When the driver and sole occupant was questioned about the powder, Officer Glass reports, he described it as just cocaine residue and offered Officer Glass a "hook-up" on Taco Bell in the future if Officer Glass would ignore that stuff. Officer Glass thanked him for the offer, since he likes Taco Bell, but declined.

The driver, Eric Xavier Vela Arriaga, DOB 121289 of Pasco, was booked into Franklin County Jail on an investigative hold for Possession of Cocaine. The Accord was impounded for a search warrant.

Thursday evening, the Accord was searched and more little baggies of cocaine were located. The PA's office is now being asked to review the case for a potential charge of Possession of Cocaine With Intent to Deliver. And maybe Attempted Bribery. Case PP17-21181 Narcotics.
