Police pull over Anthony Cruz, find heroin in vehicle
He was spotted swerving across traffic in Maite. Once police officers conducted a traffic stop, they noticed the driver, 31-year-old Anthony Cruz seemed nervous and was avoiding eye contact.
According to court documents, Cruz kept placing his hands inside his sweater even though officers repeatedly told him not to do so. When Cruz was unable to produce his driver's license, officers searched his vehicle and found a container containing four unused syringes and a pasty and brown substance which tested presumptive positive for heroin.
Cruz was charged with one count of possession of a scheduled I controlled substance as a third-degree felony, and one count of driving without a license. He was booked and confined.
