Authorities arrested a man during a routine traffic stop in Glendale on Thursday after they allegedly found him in possession of cocaine for sale.
Jose Rivera, 25, was arrested on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance for the purpose of sales.
Tahnee Lightfoot, a spokeswoman for the Glendale Police Department, said Rivera was driving a Dodge Charger near Colorado and Adams streets around 6 p.m. when he was pulled over for not displaying his license plates. She said Rivera could not provide any form of identification to the officer, and a records check revealed he had a warrant for driving on a suspended license.
During a search of his vehicle, police reportedly found a “substantial amount of white powdery substance resembling cocaine,” along with packaging materials, scales for weighing and an undisclosed amount of cash.
