EL PASO, Texas (CBS Houston) – Two local men were arrested after they were found to be in possession of marijuana – that they transported in an ice cream truck.
According to the El Paso Times, 29-year-old Anthony Arellano and 19-year-old Elijah Sanchez are facing multiple charges after deputies from the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office caught the pair in possession of the drug.
On Saturday, authorities observed a dilapidated ice cream truck with an expired registration sticker on the side of a local road. The truck was reportedly painted purple and had a cracked windshield.
When police stopped the vehicle, Sanchez made a run for it. He was soon caught, however, and police found that Sanchez had with him two tupperware bowled containing a green leafy substance that cops thought to be marijuana, the Times learned.
Arellano was also arrested when additional supplies of the drug were found in the ice cream truck itself.
The pair now face multiple drug-related charges, including possession of marijuana under 2 ounces. Sanchez was additionally charged with evading arrest and detention, according to the paper.
