Man caught with cocaine on his nose tells police ‘It’s not mine’

A man caught with cocaine around his nostrils tried to escape punishment by telling officers the drug was not his.

Fabricio Tueros Jimenez, 20, was a passenger in a vehicle pulled over by two deputies from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office in Florida, in the US.

According to a Facebook post, one of the two, Eneida Rossi, “immediately noticed Jimenez had a white powdery substance on his nose she recognised to be powder cocaine”.


Tests confirmed Ms Rossi’s suspicions and, though further cocaine was found on his person, Jimenez had a surprising take on the powder on his face.

According to the Facebook post: “Jimenez was arrested without incident but he attempted to tell the deputies the cocaine on his nose was not his!!!”

Deputies also found a bag containing 250 grams of marijuana and 13 Xanax pills in the car.

Jimenez was arrested on drug charges.
