    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. 

    Officer Glass thanked Arriaga for the offer, since he likes Taco Bell, but declined, police said. 

    Arriaga was charged with cocaine possession.
