Officer Joshua Glass pulled a vehicle over on Thursday for a minor equipment violation, the Pasco Police Department wrote on its Facebook page.

Glass noticed baggies containing white powder in the center console, which the driver tried to conceal with a cellphone, authorities said. 

Eric Xavier Vela Arriaga, 27, allegedly asked Glass to disregard the cocaine and in exchange offered him a “hook-up” at Taco Bell, police said.

Arriaga was charged with cocaine possession.
