PASCO COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – A New Port Richey man was busted with cocaine in his nose and tried to tell deputies it was not his, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

On June 5, deputies stopped a vehicle and found a backpack with 250 grams of Marijuana and 13 Xanax pills. They also noticed a passenger, 20-year-old Fabricio Tueros Jimenez, had a white powdery substance on his nose. 

Officers searched Jimenez and say he was carrying a small baggy of powder cocaine. His nose was swabbed and the substance later tested positive for cocaine. 

“Jimenez was arrested without incident but he attempted to tell the deputies the cocaine on his nose was not his!!!” the agency said on Twitter. 

Jimenez was arrested on drug charges, the Sheriff’s Office said.
