As if video games weren't addictive enough.
Authorities in Texas arrested a man on Thursday after a routine traffic violation led to the discovery of an XBox 360 packed with two large bricks of cocaine.
Police pulled over Carlos Valenzuela, 42, around 6:20 p.m. in El Paso after the suspect failed to signal 100 feet before making a right turn.
"While talking to the driver, deputies saw he was extremely nervous as he kept looking at a bag that was located on the passenger's seat of the vehicle," according to a statement by the El Paso County Sheriff's Office.
Police obtained a warrant and searched Valenzuela's light blue, older model Mercedes Benz. Inside, they found an XBox 360 gaming console containing two brick-like bundles of cocaine wrapped in "heavy duty foil paper," police said. A third
package sealed in brown packing tape also tested positive for the drug.
The three bundles weighed approximately four pounds, officials said.
Valenzuela is charged with delivery of a controlled substance.
His bail was set at $25,000.
