Man caught with cocaine

(Meredith) - A man caught with cocaine in his nostrils tried to convince deputies that the drugs weren't his during a traffic stop in Florida, according to authorities. 

Two deputies with the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office pulled over a vehicle and immediately noticed the passenger had a white powdery substance on his nose.

The passenger, identified as 20-year-old Fabricio Tueros Jimenez, told deputies the cocaine didn't belong to him, the sheriff's office wrote on Facebook Monday. 

A deputy swabbed his nose, and the powder reportedly tested positive for cocaine content.

After inspecting the vehicle, the deputies said they found 250 grams of marijuana and 13 Xanaz pills inside a backpack. 

Jimenez was also carrying a small baggy of cocaine, the sheriff's office said.

The 20-year-old was arrested on drug charges. Deputies did not identify the driver.
