Tater not: deputies find cocaine posing as spud

ATHENS, Ala. (AP) - Limestone County authorities have arrested a
man they say tried to disguise five ounces of cocaine as a baked

Sheriff's Lt. Lance Royals says they got a tip Monday afternoon
that a man in a silver Mustang had cocaine.

When investigators approached the man in a parking lot outside a
restaurant, he said he had nothing illegal.

Investigators searched the car and found a carryout plate with chicken, rice and what looked like a foil-wrapped potato.

The foil contained five ounces of cocaine.

The 21-year-old originally gave a false name and said he lived in Huntsville but couldn't remember the address, but Royals says his real name is Ruben Orozco.

Orozco was being held without bail on the trafficking charge and
on $2,500 bail on a charge of giving a false name.
