A man found to have cocaine under his nose told police that it wasn’t his. Fabricio Tueros Jimenez was a passenger in a car pulled over on Sunday for a routine traffic stop.
Deputies for Hillsborough County noticed a white powdery substance on the 20-year-old’s nose.
His hooter was swabbed by cops and test results showed it was cocaine. Authorities did not specify the events leading up to the traffic stop.
According to the sheriff’s office, Jimenez tried to tell deputies that the cocaine on his nose did not belong to him.
Deputies said they found a backpack containing 250 grams of marijuana and 13 Xanax pills. They said after searching Jimenez, they also found a small bag of powder cocaine.
He was arrested on drug charges.
Once the post went public, Facebook users were quick to poke fun at the young man’s excuse.
One lady posted: “I was sniffing it for a friend.”
