SAN ANGELO, Texas - Police weren’t fooled when a San Angelo man allegedly tried to conceal crack cocaine and marijuana in his fast food.
Damon Demetrice Thompson, 27, was arrested Thursday afternoon after San Angelo officers – during a traffic stop – spotted chili smeared on his T-shirt and detected a “very strong odor of marijuana coming from his vehicle.”
While searching his vehicle and inspecting his “freshly purchased” fast food, officers discovered a bag of chili and cheese-coated ‘suspected’ crack cocaine along with a bag of marijuana hidden amongst (his) Wienerschnitzel chili cheese fries,” San Angelo police said in a news release.
Police say Thompson was driving a 2001 Lincoln Town Car when officers attempted to pull the car over near South Koenigheim and West Concho Avenue. Thompson allegedly continued driving for “several blocks, committing numerous traffic violations” before pulling into the Walgreens parking lot on North Abe Street.
In addition to locating the cocaine and marijuana, police seized drug paraphernalia “associated with the trafficking of illegal narcotics,” the release said.
Thompson was charged with first-degree felony manufacture delivery of controlled substance, possession of marijuana, fleeing police officer, and no safety belt.
