Texas Police Arrest Man With Cocaine Hidden in XBox 360

This brings a new meaning to “addicted to the game,” doesn’t it? 42-year-old Carlos Valenzuela was arrested in El Paso, Texas, after a routine traffic stop yielded an Xbox 360 hiding two large bricks of coke. Valenzuela failed to signal 100 feet before making a right turn, so police pulled him over. Officers noticed that the jittery Valenzuela kept looking at a bag sitting in the passenger’s seat.

After securing a warrant, police searched his vehicle and found the console, which contained the cocaine wrapped in “heavy duty foil paper.” A third package sealed with packing tape also tested positive for cocaine.

Valenzuela was charged with delivery of a controlled substance, and his bail was set at $25,000. The true crime is that a perfectly good Xbox 360 was ruined for this failed mission.
