Wichita Falls police arrest man for cocaine possession

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ)

Wichita Falls police arrested a man for possession of cocaine after a traffic stop on Saturday.
Police say they pulled over Luis Chavez-Hernandez after he failed to signal a turn near Britain and Avenue E. After running a standard warrant check, it was discovered Chavez-Hernandez had an active warrant for his arrest.
After taking him into custody, police discovered he was carrying a small plastic baggy containing a white powdery substance which tested positive for cocaine.
Hernandez was arrested for possession of a controlled substance of less than one gram. The charge was enhanced due to him being close to a city park which is a drug-free zone.
